Course summary

Cyber security is now recognised as one of the top global risks, with hacking, malicious code and data theft among some of the reasons why it is vital in the design, development, and implementation of IT systems. This is particularly important as internet users increase exponentially in emerging economies, more data is created and collected than ever before, and businesses find themselves increasingly reliant on online services, and in need of a strong cyber security culture.

  • Build your understanding of the managerial and technical elements of information security, as well as enterprise-level security
  • Choose a course designed in consultation with industry to ensure it delivers all the skills needed for the workplace
  • Enhance your employability and career prospects by preparing for the BSI ISO 27001 lead auditor certifications which are highly sought after by employers
  • Study innovative techniques being developed through the latest research at the cutting edge of cyber security
  • Learn how to take a strategic and holistic approach to protect an organisation's systems
  • Be inspired by a teaching team offering a blend of industry experience and strong academic credentials.

Our MSc Cyber Security has been developed to teach you the very latest in information protection techniques, all delivered by academics at the leading edge of research into system penetration and intrusion analysis.

The speed with which the internet and information sharing has developed has exceeded the pace of secure infrastructure development. Our MSc Cyber Security is designed to help bridge this gap and meet the accelerating demand for professionals with proven information security expertise.

The course prepares students for a management role within organisations to be able to put in place and give continuance to the security profile of the company. This is particularly important in light of the national Cyber Security Strategy and the current shortage of related skills.

Individuals with proven information security knowledge are now in high demand across many different sectors. Successful completion of this degree can therefore lead to prestigious roles in the IT security arena, including Chief Information Officer, System Penetration Tester, Information Security Consultant and Information Security Risk Assessor.
