Course summary

The UK is a globally leading digital economy, yet its prosperity is reliant upon an ability to secure businesses, data and networks from cyber threats. Costs of cyber security failure are substantial for companies and nation states, with often hidden consequences for wider society. To manage risk, the cyber sector needs rational and resilient people that hold an industry-informed, holistic understanding of current issues and future directions of travel.

This Cyber Security course focuses on the operational level decisions that business and public sector leaders need to make in order to develop, monitor and evaluate cost effective cyber risk management strategies. You’ll learn to formulate digital-era leadership techniques that deliver genuine business benefits.

Overview

MSc Cyber Security has been designed in collaboration with some of the UK’s cyber business leaders. We prioritise the ‘complete picture’ to give you the insight and toolkit needed to make effective operation decisions that protect organisations at risk of cyber attack.

You begin by building knowledge of the fundamentals of cyber security before examining existing and emerging defence and offense strategies. Equipped with a good understanding of vulnerabilities and attack vectors, you then explore how to build an active cyber defence armoury. Modules on law and regulation, systems of governance, operational resilience and risk assessment provide the conceptual context needed to engage the practical realities of cyber security management.

Careers

For graduates of Computing disciplines, MSc Cyber Security supports entry into a range of IT roles where cyber security is an integral component but not necessarily an entire responsibility. You’ll be able to demonstrate your value to a range of companies quickly, and later build on the management skills gained during your study to compete for more senior positions.

For those already employed in the IT field, this Cyber Security Master's provides opportunities for professional upskilling. The programme helps improve your prospects of transitioning to cyber security roles and decision-making positions. The knowledge you gain on the course will in addition help you increase your profile within your company, while benefiting the teams you work within.
