The number of information security incidents, as well as the financial losses relating to such incidents, is increasing. Thus, it is not surprising that information security management, aimed at safeguarding an organisation's information assets, has become a key strategic issue for many organisations.

In today's complex environments, safeguarding an organisation's information assets is difficult and requires more than solely technical skills. In order to facilitate a broad understanding of the field, our programme includes courses considering organisational, social and technical aspects of information security.

During the first year, students will gain a broad understanding of information security and develop advanced knowledge and skills within information security management. The second year aims to develop advanced knowledge and skills in research and investigation. Students will learn how to develop and communicate knowledge within the field of study as well as increase their degree of reflection on research and practice within the field. Teaching is based on case-based learning and flipped classroom pedagogy. These pedagogical methods encourage students to active learning and to develop their problem-solving skills which are necessary to address the complexity of information security management in organisations. By working with cases developed in collaboration with our industry partners, the students gain a deeper understanding and practical field experience.

Globally, organizations and businesses are increasingly reliant on information technology. Key enterprise data and customer information are stored and shared, communications are made, and transactions between customers, banks, and partners are completed.

Because of the volume and importance of enterprise data that is stored and shared electronically, the defence against ever-evolving cybercrimes has become extremely costly in both the private and public sectors.

It’s estimated by the New Zealand National Cyber Security Centre that cyber-attacks on New Zealand computers and networks have more than doubled in five years. The global cost of cyber-crime has been put at $600 billion a year.

Organisations now seek skilled professionals who have both technical and managerial skill-sets and who can lead teams of technologists to develop and implement security policies and procedures in the defence against cyber threats and can also monitor and audit enterprise information systems.

There is an immediate need in the economy for IT security management professionals. IT Security Specialist is listed on both the Skilled Occupations and Long term skills shortage list by Immigration New Zealand.

The NMIT Post-Graduate Diploma in IT Security Management has been developed by staff with experience in international IT security and digital forensics programmes. It’s aimed at undergraduates seeking a pathway into IT work or people already working in the IT sector looking for a move into managerial roles.

Programme design

This programme is designed to provide students with skills needed to bridge the gap that often exists between enterprise managers and the technical aspects of IT security in the modern digital and internetconnected environment.

The Programme content is applied in focus and is targeted at job-ready skill acquisition. Using a balance of practical work, case studies and theory, the courses prepare students with effective communication and project management knowledge for innovative and effective leadership in crucial areas of IT security. The programme also lays the foundations of research skills which are relevant to IT security and to further postgraduate-level study.

The only UK masters degree in the field of cyber risk to combine aspects of business and information technology, MSc Cyber Security Risk Management will equip you with a blend of skills that are in demand in the sector.

Introducing your degree

Unlike other UK cyber security masters degrees, which have a computer science focus, this unique programme combines modules from a range of disciplines. It is therefore ideally placed to meet the demand for professionals with the necessary management skills, as well as the technical knowledge, to effectively manage cyber security risks. You’ll be taught by experts in risk management, cyber security and computer science.

In addition, you’ll benefit from the co-location of several specialist research centres at Southampton. These include the University’sAcademic Centre of Excellence for Cyber Security Research, which was set up to advance the UK government’s cyber security agenda, and the highly regarded Centre for Risk Research. You’ll graduate with an accredited degree, enabling you to apply for credits towards professional risk or insurance qualifications.

Overview

Cyber security is a global concern for companies and governments, but there is a recognised shortage of cyber security practitioners with the breadth of skills required to understand and manage the risk of cyber attacks. MSc Cyber Security Risk Management, the only UK cyber security programme to be offered within a business school rather than a computer science department, is designed to fill this gap. 

Rather than focusing purely on the technical aspects of cyber security, MSc Cyber Security Risk Management offers a unique combination of modules encompassing business risk management, computer science and cyber security. You’ll gain a grounding in the essential technical aspects of the subject, but you’ll also develop the managerial and analytical skills needed to identify risks, communicate them within an organisation and put effective cyber risk management approaches into practice.

Southampton’s expertise in cyber risk research has been recognised with the award of an Academic Centre of Excellence for Cyber Security Research, funded by GCHQ and the Economic and Social Research Council as part of the UK government’s national cyber security strategy. Our academics are active partners in the Centre’s work and bring their research insights to the course. You’ll also benefit from expertise within the Business School’s Centre for Risk Research, the only specialist centre of its type in a Russell Group university. 

We welcome applicants from a range of academic backgrounds. Many of our students bring some professional experience to their studies, while some join us straight from their undergraduate studies.

However, with the benefits deriving from the ability to automatically manage so much information, come major threats to businesses, governments and individuals. These threats include possible fraud through information manipulation, deliberate damage to stored and transmitted information, and blackmail associated with the threat of damage.

The field of Information Security, namely the study of countermeasures to these real and serious threats, has grown up very rapidly in recent years. The subject embraces a range of technologies such as cryptography, computer security, and fraud detection, and also includes the study of how security can best be managed.

This advanced course is taught by the Information Security Group (ISG), and security experts from industry. It is designed to produce a comprehensive education in the technical, legal and commercial aspects of Information Security.

Why choose this course?

- This pioneering course was the first of its kind in the world. Our Information Security Group (ISG) was recognised in 1998 when the College was awarded a Queen’s Anniversary Prize for the ISG’s work. The citation read “This pioneering Group provides a unique national resource for the training of information security specialists and the development of highly secure communications and computer systems. It offers world-leading independent expertise in a field of crucial importance where trust and integrity are paramount.”

- As this course was the first of its kind, we consulted with more than 20 companies and Government departments to ascertain what they felt such a degree course should contain. Many of these organisations have maintained close links with the department and, in a typical year, you would benefit from lectures or seminars from up to 50 guest speakers.

- Having an offering that is up to date and relevant to potential employers is a key theme to all our activities. Therefore, in addition to our comprehensive syllabus and accompanying seminars, you will be offered some cutting-edge optional units.

- You will have access to virtualization software from the ISG Lab in which you can experiment with network security settings and concepts introduced in these units. As well as the general purpose lab, there is also a Penetration Testing Laboratory and the Smart Card Centre where specialist equipment and tools may be accessed for those who may be undertaking a practical project in these areas.

- The ISG also recognises the standing of the CISSP qualification in the workplace. As a result we have established an arrangement with (ISC)2 whereby you will attend an intensive two-day CISSP revision course at Royal Holloway and then sit the associated exam on campus.

- Our cryptographers have close links with Bletchley Park and many students visit that historic site during their studies.

Department research and industry highlights

The ISG is an interdisciplinary research group conducting internationally-leading research in all areas of information security:

- device and system security (including security of portable devices, smart cards, smart tokens and embedded systems)

- protection of evolving networks (including wireless, mobile, ad hoc and ubiquitous networks)

- trusted computing

- security infrastructure provision (including protection of critical national infrastructure and grid security)

- socio-technical studies in information security (including both organisational information security research and sociological research in the wider "Information Society" context)

- application security (including identity management and software security)

- fundamental security technologies (including cryptography, cryptographic protocols, and authentication technologies).

Our breadth of coverage, coupled with our size, distinguished educational and academic track record, and long-standing and deep engagement with industry, makes the ISG a unique research group in the UK.

On completion of the course graduates will have a solid foundation in:
- the essential concepts, methods and approaches of information security

- the main security issues in the development of digital business activities

- the technical, legal and commercial issues that need to be addressed when assessing the information security needs of an organisation

- the organisational and personal issues that need to be addressed when implementing information security within an organisation

- the potential sources of vulnerability within an information system and the possible implications of failing to counter these with adequate security controls

- the appropriate countermeasures to information security threats and the likely implications of their adoption

- the relevance and impact of new developments in information security threats, technologies and controls.

Assessment

Assessment is carried out by written examinations (in the four core and two elective units) and by completing the MSc Project.

Employability & career opportunities

Our graduates are highly employable and, in recent years, have entered many different information security-related areas, including banking, telecommunications, large security consultancies, public utilities, and the retail sector. This taught Masters course also equips postgraduate students with a solid foundation for continued PhD studies.

The MSc in Cyber Security and Management is designed for those wishing to develop a career as a cyber security professional, or to take a leading technical or managerial role in an organisation critically dependent upon data and information communication technology. It is suitable for those from a computer science or information technology education background or courses with a significant component of either. Work experience will also be considered.

Delivering effective cyber security in a global business environment

In 2010, the UK government announced a 650 million pound investment strategy into Cyber Security & declared that Cyber-Security had become a ‘tier 1’ priority alongside international terrorism and major national incidents. The UK is one of many governments around the world which recognize the serious nature of the threat that is emerging from the cyber-sphere. Our goal for the MSc programme is to give focus to the strategic deployment and implementation of Cyber Security within an organization. We want to develop strategic thinkers who understand the Cyber threat to an organization and its resources and are able to build and support secure systems that support the strategic growth of a business. The course covers all aspects of Cyber Security including network security, computer security and information security. Alongside this, the course focuses on the business context so that students can progress their careers more rapidly through organisations and aim very particularly at management positions.

A Master's course uniquely embedded in industry

When you study the MSc Cyber Security and Management at WMG, Warwick, you will gain an exposure to industry that is unparalleled in many HEIs. All the cyber security modules contain a considerable input from industry, for instance in the academic year 2012-2013 alone, we had the following companies giving guest lectures to our students: HP, Amethyst Consulting, Deep Secure Ltd, Siskin Technolgy, SOCA (Serious Organised Crime Agency), CSC, VMware, OCSIA, Nottingham Police, Mozilla, Metropolitan Police, Kaspersky, Berwin Leighton Paisner, LW Risk Associates, Telefonica, IBM, Garren James Associates, Blackstage Forensics, Derbyshire NHS Trust and Nettitude.* But this is just one way in which students on the course engage with industry. Further to this, you will have opportunities to visit and present at conferences, participate in specialist industrial trips and even receive mentoring/advice from industry in key stages of your work.

Course Structure

The course is modular; each student takes a combination of core and elective modules. 9 modules are studied and assessed in total. Modules consist of nominally 40 hours directed tuition in the form of lectures, seminars, group work, presentations, case studies and e-learning. This is covered in a full-immersion, intensive week.

Modules are assessed by Post Module Assignment - this is typically a further 40 -60 hours of work.The taught modules account for 50% of the Master's degree. A major individual research project, submitted in the form of a dissertation accounts for the other 50%. This should take approximately 900 hours of study time. An oral examination is held upon completion.

For the current academic year (2017/18), the course comprises nine 10-credit modules and a 90-credit dissertation.Please note:Our course and module content and schedule is continually reviewed and updated to reflect the latest research expertise at Warwick, so it is therefore very important that you check the website for the latest information before you apply and when you accept an offer. warwick.ac.uk/wmgmasters/csm
