The Wichita Eagle reports reports the program will help meet growing need for security information workers. Helping drive the demand has been several high-profile incidents such as the massive data breach at Target stores and the spread of the computer bug nicknamed “Heartbleed.”

David Hofmeister, dean of the Friends University Graduate School, says in a statement the program teaches students how to protect systems and what to do at technological and managerial levels when a breach occurs.

The program will be offered both at its Wichita campus and online.

Friends University says a graduate-level curriculum for information system is new to Wichita and its surrounding region.
