Course content

CSM is designed for graduates looking to understand or apply cyber security in a consultancy, strategic, business or management context. It is ideally suited to those from a computer science or IT background; the programme also caters for non-STEM graduates with a specific interest in cyber security.

Over the course of the year, you’ll develop a clear understanding of the cyber threat landscape and how a cyber incident may evolve. You will cover the key technologies required to defend and protect organisational information infrastructures from threats and attacks, and will learn how to manage and limit the impact an attack can have on a business.

This MSc focuses on the strategic deployment and implementation of cyber security within an organisation. Our aim is to develop strategic thinkers who understand the threat, can manage resources, implement solutions, and can effectively communicate these to senior decision makers in order to support the strategic growth of a business.

Alongside core cyber modules, you’ll take business and management modules so that you can progress your career more rapidly through organisations and aim very particularly at management positions.

This course has a pathway provisionally certified by GCHQ, the UK government’s National Technical Authority for Information Assurance. If you are an International student, you should value the GCHQ certification just as much as any UK student as the content of the course is internationally applicable.
