Cybersecurity is a matter that is in full force in the business, state, banking, and personal spheres, which directly affects the economic results of organizations, therefore it is very important that both public institutions and private companies have the human resources suitable and trained to technically face cyber-attacks by hackers and international organizations dedicated to theft, data traffic and extortion in the form of data hijacking, it is therefore of great interest that universities can provide trained personnel in both theoretical concepts and skills practices to successfully deal with cyberattacks, this project has identified a direct relationship between the employability of a systems engineering graduate and their knowledge of cybersecurity, since institutions require professionals trained from the university to adopt them and that the learning curve be as little as possible, but nevertheless in reality that is not happening. The study was carried out with graduates of the systems engineering career of the university and with managers and/or heads of systems of private companies and public sector entities, the results showed that there is a relationship between the level of knowledge of cybersecurity the employability of these in cybersecurity areas, the lower the level of knowledge, the lower the level of employability, and based on these results, a line of cybersecurity courses is proposed to improve their level of employability and adapt to the needs of organizations.
