Careers

How can the MSc Security by Research support your career?

This degree is specifically designed to equip graduates with the knowledge and skills required to fulfil corporate security requirements and allow them to progress to the post of security analyst or security architect.

Security analysts are responsible for the security within company infrastructures. They work closely with IT, network administration and security services to explore and understand the security needs within an organisation and support it with adequate measures like enforcing new policies and implementing dedicated security training for staff. The security analyst is also the detective who finds attacks and finds way to prevent them or at least to bin the evidence for forensic purposes. A security analyst works hand in hand with a security architect who is the designer of security controls and their placement within the corporate infrastructure.
