Learn about both the technical and the business issues that can bridge the gap between IT security and business risk.

Who is it for?

This Masters course is aimed at IT professionals with approximately five years’ experience and is intended to provide them with the skills that they need to progress to a management role in information security and risk. The course will appeal to companies and professionals that need to develop or improve their capability in managing IT-related security, in order to enter markets with higher demands of dependability and security, comply with new regulations, or re-qualify for new roles.

Objectives

Concerns about cyber security and information risk have led to a growing market for technical specialists, but there is also a need for more senior professionals with an awareness of both the technical and the business issues who can bridge the gap between IT security and business risk.

On this Management of Information Security and Risk MSc programme you will learn about both the technical and the business issues that can bridge the gap between IT security and business risk.

Understand how to communicate these risks to both the technical staff and the executive business team (CEO, CIO, CFO and COO) in a language they share. Focus on human-machine interaction and decision making within today's increasingly complex Political-Economical-Socio-Technical (PEST) systems.

Find out about latest industry and government standards, legislation and best practice from leading technical experts and network with your peers to compare and contrast best practices from different industries.

Teaching and learning

The modules are taught by academics at the Centre for Software Reliability, within the School of Mathematics, Computer Science and Engineering, and also by visiting lecturers from industry. We also have invited speakers from academia and industry in most modules. Teaching takes place via seminars, lectures, group work and tutorials. The assessment is through coursework only – this consists of written work (individual and group), presentations and peer review.

The modules will be delivered in block mode, with students taking two modules per term. Each module consists of two blocks as follows:
-Thursday evening: 5pm - 9pm
-Friday: 9am-5pm
-Saturday: 9am-5pm

In summary, assuming attendance at the Thursday evening sessions can be done without having to take any time off from work, the students are expected to take eight Fridays off from work in a calendar year (though some employers may allow their employees to take these times off as study leave), and they will need to also attend classes for a further eight Saturdays (i.e. two Fridays and two Saturdays per module). Timetables are for guidance only and are subject to change.

Modules

The course covers the skills and knowledge necessary to be successful in senior roles in information security and risk.

The course supports the extra breadth of knowledge required by people with professional experience to help them progress towards target roles in management or consulting on security, assurance and risk.

Applicants can also apply to enrol on individual modules as CPDs. It will then be possible for you to gradually build credits for the MSc should you wish to take this route. City, University of London is also an approved MoD Enhanced Learning Credits (ELC) scheme provider (ID-1538).

Modules providing Professional Skills
-Information Leadership (15 credits)
-Executive Development (15 credits)
-Socio-Technical Systems (15 credits)
-IT Risk Management for effective performance and the prevention of fraud, error and disaster (15 credits)

Specialised Security and Risk Modules
-Information Security Management (15 credits)
-IT Risk and Resilience (15 credits)
-Quantitative Risk Analysis (15 credits)
-Assurance Cases (15 credits)

Career prospects

This course will appeal to companies and professionals that need to develop or improve their capability in managing IT-related security, in order to enter markets with higher demands of dependability and security, comply with new regulations, or re-qualify for new roles. Graduates should be suitable for consideration as the CSO or Security Architects and Senior Information Risk Managers and would also greatly help them in information security Consultancy and Auditing roles.

Our previous and existing cohort of students have all been employed full-time in a wide range of companies, including multi-billion pound turnover internationals in the aviation industry, global auditing companies (e.g. KPMG), media companies (e.g. Sky and Sony), financial services companies (e.g. Deutsche Bank) in the City of London, small and medium enterprises (SMEs), government departments and NHS trusts. The programme helps students build a strong network with their peers and maintain it as part of their career development.

Overview

Becoming an expert designer and coordinator of information systems projects, with knowledge in data analysis and cyber law, and thus enabling you to take a leading role when tackling any ICT project.

There is hardly a company in the world that doesn’t use ICT in some shape or form and many of them face problems in getting ICT to do what it’s supposed to do. So they turn to ICT technicians for advice. However, more often than not, technical problems are only the tip of the iceberg, and a broader perspective is needed to understand and solve them. Radboud University’s Master’s programme in Information Sciences will teach you to become a digital architect who can look beyond mere technical sides to ICT adoption and assist in designing competitive business solutions.

We’ll teach you the broad theoretical foundations you’ll need to understand the technological aspect of any ICT project that may come your way and we’ll help you look beyond technological concerns when tackling ICT-related problems in practice. Radboud University is well known in the field of information architecture, systems theory, and the quality and security of information systems.

There is a large demand for well-trained information experts who can help implement sound, secure, user-friendly technology. Many of our students are offered jobs even before they graduate, as consultants, project managers or ICT specialists.

Why study Information Sciences at Radboud University?

- Data analysis, privacy and cyber law are the essential components of modern ICT. Radboud University is unique in offering this combination within the field of Information Sciences.
- This programme offers a good mix: forming a solid technical, organisational and legal foundation, getting hands-on experience and developing the insights needed to take a leading role in successful change programmes with active engagement from both technical savvy people and those unfamiliar with the field.
- The field of Information Sciences has the highest chance of finding employment and graduates are offered some of the highest salary for starter position in the Netherlands.
- The second half of your programme offers the possibility of an internship, which in this field is paid and can contribute to financing your Master’s study. We have close contacts with the private sector which can help you to find your own internship position.
- Electives enable you in fine-tuning the focus of this specialisation to meet your own academic and professional interests.
- You will be taught by top researchers and ICT experts of the Institute for Computing and Information Sciences (iCIS), which was ranked first in the latest national research assessment.
- Some graduates even start their own businesses, something that the Mercator Incubator right here in Nijmegen could help you with.

Technical and management students

This programme is suited for both students with a technological background with management ambitions, as those with a management background and a strong affinity with technology wanting to specialise in ICT. As the programme is a technological programme we do expect the management students to have taken a minor in Information Sciences during their Bachelor’s study, or they will need to take a half-year pre-Master’s programme before being admitted

Our approach to this field

At Radboud University, we believe that a good information specialist is more than an expert in information architecture, systems theory, and the quality and security of information systems. They form the bridge between the people involved. You’ll therefore need to learn to work together with different stakeholders within a project, for example, the super technical programmer, the demanding client and, in some cases, the computer illiterate user. You’ll need to be able represent all their interests and find a solution that’s satisfactory to all. By the end of the programme you’ll be a well-trained digital architect with the necessary managerial skills.

Radboud University's information specialists also work closely with colleagues from other disciplines, such as law, medicine, brain research, and artificial intelligence. Because information systems have a wide application, this Master’s programme shows you how to look beyond the borders of your own discipline. And the annual study trips in the elective ICT in a Different Culture – to countries such as India, Brazil, and South Africa – will also enable you to extend your own boundaries.

Career prospects

There is a big demand for highly trained information experts who can apply good, user-friendly technology. Many of our students are offered jobs even before they graduate. Most go into industry, banking and insurance, or to public-sector organisations such as schools and hospitals.

Students with this Master’s could think of positions as consultants, project managers or ICT specialists. And more companies are adding the position of Chief Information Officer (CIO) to their board of directors. This Master’s programme is definitely a good stepping stone to reaching this kind of position in your future career.

- Your own company
Some students develop their own ideas and innovations while taking part in this Master’s. They see what’s on offer, understand what’s lacking and realise where the possibilities lie. In Nijmegen there are plenty of opportunities for those wanting to start their own business. For example, the Mercator Incubator could help those with a good business plan with advice or even by offering affordable accommodation and other facilities for the first year or two of setting up a company.
