Abstract

The significance of corporate computer security arises primarily from the fact that criminal use of their private information systems and internal resources can have severe implications across the board, resulting in both productive and financial problems. As a result, company computer security must be geared at preventing threats and hazards to internal information systems, and organizations must have skilled staff in computer technologies capable of ensuring data security, above all, of predicting such threats and risks. The present study aims to demonstrate the demand and employability that would have the creation of the career of engineering in computer security in Ecuador, in the National University of Chimborazo, obtaining as a result a favorable response, with high scores of interests and acceptability in studies and employability in computer security, even the study also reflects a global trend in this field.
