If cost is particularly important to you, you might want to check out Southern Illinois University – Carbondale. While not the least expensive program on this list, SIU offers some scholarships that can help bring down costs. For example, students pursuing a cheap information security degree online are eligible for IST-specific scholarships with relatively straightforward application processes. Regardless of how you pay for your degree, you’ll benefit from SIU’s asynchronous courses, special distance learning support network, and six-course cybersecurity concentration. The latter introduces topics that include information assurance, wireless security, enterprise network management, and more. Read more...
