What will I study?
Incidents of cyber-crime have increased in the UK by 48% from 2013-14 according to PwC’s Global State of Information Security Survey 2015, costing the UK up to £27bn a year. While their 2016 survey has reported a significant shift in the way organisations are taking action, including their willingness to invest in security.
Our MSc Cyber Security will teach you how to handle security incidents, identify new and existing threats and determine methods to minimise them. We will also provide an in-depth coverage of the fundamental concepts, principles and technologies for network security. Going beyond just theoretical theory, you will be given a practical understanding of governance and assurance, along with technology risk practices.
How will I be taught and assessed?
Our MSc Cyber Security is designed to allow you to fit your studies around your working life and is assessed through modular assignments, exams and a final dissertation. All taught lectures are delivered on a series of weekends spread throughout the 2 year programme.
Each module builds upon your understanding of information governance and assurance, along with technology risk management practices. You will study with a diverse group like-minded IT professionals, and will be able to trial new approaches and processes in a safe environment, working on real world scenarios and case studies.
We offer extensive student support in and outside of the classroom with a dedicated student support team based in London.
