Course content

Our specialist Master’s course aims to addresses the skills gap and needs identified in the UK Government’s National Cyber Security Strategy.

It is also designed to address the global cybersecurity workforce shortage, forecast to be 1.5 million in 2020 by the global information security workforce study – the largest of its kind run on behalf of the International Information System Security Certification Consortium or (ISC).

The European Commission reports the global cost of computer crime to be around 750 billion euros a year, increasing the demand for individuals who can advise businesses and organisations on the best ways to protect their computer networks and the commercially sensitive information stored within them.

The course will provide the opportunity to critically examine the nature of the cyber security issues and threats facing modern businesses and organisations within the context of associated business issues, such as globalisation and ethics. You should achieve an integrated understanding of operations and strategic management, so that you can manage and mitigate future risks of cyber and information security failure.
