ManTech, Kaplan partner on cybersecurity program

HERNDON, Va. — ManTech International Corp. and Kaplan University have partnered to provide tailored cyber degree programs that prepare ManTech employees for the Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) certification and may be applied toward bachelor’s and master’s degrees in cybersecurity.

“ManTech’s new education initiative builds on our strategy to attract and develop our nation’s finest cyber talent to support our clients’ missions,” said Kevin M. Phillips, ManTech President and Chief Operating Officer.

Betty Vandenbosch, president of Kaplan University, said that by some expert accounts, global cybersecurity spending is projected to exceed $1 trillion in the next five years.

“When we introduced our bachelor’s and master’s degrees in cybersecurity more than two years ago, we recognized a big and growing need for educational support for working adult learners in this field,” Vandenbosch said.
ManTech has an office in Chambersburg, Pa. Kaplan, which has a campus in Hagerstown, Md., also offers courses online.
