The MSc Cyber Security Management is a specialist programme aimed at both graduate students who have previously studied business and management subjects and students wishing to covert to management from STEM subjects.

The course has been created in response to current market demands and new political measures put in place by worldwide Governments. These measures are aiming to educate organisations on the risk of cyber attacks on businesses.

Specifically, this MSc addresses the needs identified in the UK National Cyber Security Strategy. The Global Information Security Workforce Study estimates that the global cyber security workforce shortage will widen to 1.5 million by 2020. This MSc is designed to address this problem.

WHY CHOOSE THIS COURSE?

The MSc Cyber Security Management has been designed explicitly to develop the knowledge and skills required by Government and industry, and has been developed in direct response to calls from the UK Government, and leading industry figures, to build cybersecurity management capacity in the workforce.

Coventry Business School is working in partnership with the Coventry Law School, to deliver MSc Cyber Security Management, a course that addresses the management of IT security challenges faced by today’s organisations. The Cyber Security Management Research Group within the Business Faculty Research Centre (CBiS), includes highly qualified academics with considerable practical experience of network and computer systems security and risk management from a variety of backgrounds including law enforcement, accounting, business and commerce.

WHAT WILL I LEARN?

Specialist modules include International Cyber and Digital Law, Cybersecurity Risk Management and Network Defence Management. Taught materials delivered in these modules have been developed by research active staff as members of the Cyber Security Management Research Group and in association with thought leaders and industry experts.

HOW WILL THIS COURSE ENHANCE MY CAREER PROSPECTS?

Organisations, both private and public, realise the need for their management staff to be aware of information security risks and for their staff to have the ability to put plans in place to reduce and mitigate risks, threats, and crises. Furthermore, managers also need to have the relevant skills and knowledge to carry out a security audit and assurance process, have risk management strategies in place to counter cyber attacks and to have a working knowledge of cyber security terminology for effective communication.

The course is aimed at future managers who have a need to deal with cyber security.

OPPORTUNITIES FOR AN INTERNATIONAL EXPERIENCE

There will be an emphasis on intercultural experiences for students on the MSc programme via:
-The opportunity for students to enrol on the Global Leaders programme.
-Advertised field trips throughout the School.
-The use of international case studies and examples throughout the programme.

Security ranks high on both the societal as well as political agenda. The threat of terrorism, transnational organized crime, civil war, urban riots or natural disasters is making headlines almost every day and is a guarantee for political turmoil. Although from a factual perspective the risk of high-end security incidents is in most Western countries low, the risk perception is far more higher. When it comes to security and crisis, risk perception seems to be as important as actual risk assessments.

Course detail

During the one year multi-disciplinary master program students will become familiar with the political and social dimensions of the governance of (in)security and crises. By analyzing security discourses, security actors, security practices and security outcomes students will become acquainted with the ‘wicked problem’ of security and crises topics in a complex and globalizing world.
As security is no longer a public good solely provided by state actors or public actors but the combined outcome of public actors, private security actors, civil society and citizens as well, the master program will focus on the multiplicity of actors engaged in defining and practicing security.

Further, as a result of the globalized and interwoven world of today in which incidents, images and messages travel within seconds from one part of the world to another part of the world, students will study current security and crisis challenges from a ‘glocal’ perspective: both global and local levels and especially the nexus of those levels.

Format

In the master’s program students will be confronted with the insights of various academic disciplines and a combination of theory and practice and skills relevant for a professional career in public or private security and crisis organizations. Students will become familiar with the causes of different forms of crises and threats to security, with patterns of responses and governance of these phenomena, and policies and strategies to prevent threats, incidents or crises. The Master thesis project provides students the opportunity to specifically focus on one particular type of crisis or security issue and how certain actors deal with it.

Careers

The combination of academic and professional skills taught in the master’s programme makes Leiden graduates excellent candidates for positions in national and international Public Administration as well as for managerial positions in the private sector. Many of them also find their way to consultancy organisations and other private companies in the field of crisis and security management.

This specialisation prepares students for a career in the rapidly expanding domain of local, national and international security and safety management. In recent years, there has been a rising demand for professionals with a background in crisis and safety management, both in the public and private sector. Students with this specialisation can apply for jobs in policymaking departments, local and provincial government, international organizations and NGOs, consultancy agents, and private industry.

Since the terrorist ‘spectaculars’ of the early 2000s intelligence has moved from being a niche element of the security landscape to an aspect of state activity that is referred to by the media on a daily basis. As such, intelligence has become an area of government activity that the public believes it understands. The reality is, however, that the media coverage is partial and often misleading.

See the website http://www.lboro.ac.uk/departments/sbe/executive-education/programmes/accredited/iis/

About the Programme

This course aims to provide an opportunity to study intelligence and international security in an empirically grounded, practical and serious way, equipping students to apply these skills in related or complementary areas. The Intelligence and International Security course is specially designed to appeal to those working in security and defence communities, government ministries and related corporate sectors, drawn from domestic and international markets.

The course offers the opportunity to study intelligence and international security covering topics such as security, private security, corporate intelligence, government and policing, alongside general management such as management of skills, organisational behaviour and managing risk. Furthermore, the distinctive elements of the programme will add value to those who sit within emergency management roles and who wish to become informed about the security challenges present in the international system and possible intelligence-led responses to them.

The programme’s specific aims are to:
- Promote knowledge and understanding in the subject of intelligence and international security as a co-joined disciplinary concern.

- Provide advanced training where an opportunity is afforded for intelligence and security professionals to bring together professional expertise and growing academic abilities.

- Promote intelligence and international security as serious subjects for academic study within security, private security, corporate intelligence, government and policing industries.

- Enhance the self-esteem of the participating students and to establish intelligence and security as relevant (and connected) disciplines within the corporate environment in order that it might rank alongside other management disciplines.

- Assist individuals with career development, advancement of their professional competence and standing, and their lifelong learning.

- Provide an opportunity for intelligence and security professionals from uniformed, corporate intelligence and public sector backgrounds to migrate into or further embed into the corporate and private sector security domains.

- Provide a unique academic qualification in intelligence and international security, that brings together professional expertise and academic disciplines relevant to this interdisciplinary field.

- Assist with entry into security representative bodies, for example The Security Institute, Association of Security Consultants, and to assist in gaining Fellow status. To similarly assist with entry into professional networks with a view to expanding the employability and commercial traction of the candidate in their post-graduation professional life.

The programme represents a strong blend of the additional strengths of Loughborough University in approaching intelligence and international security from the strong foundations of the emergency management and crisis management and response strands that we have on campus. In doing so, it recognises the centrality of international imperatives, cooperation and coordination as a central feature of its programme design. The programme acknowledges and examines how intelligence and international security have become key issues in the lives of those engaged in operational and strategic management and indeed in business continuity. Alongside this, the study of intelligence has become a growing academic area of study over the last twenty years and the programme, which is designed and taught by internationally recognised experts in intelligence, security, risk, emergency and crisis management, offers a stimulating learning environment where academic and professional approaches to intelligence and international security are combined.

Structure

The programme runs over 12 months to 36 months depending on the qualification. There are three levels of qualification, each leading to the next – Postgraduate Certificate, Postgraduate Diploma and MSc.

Delivery

The individual modules are delivered in what is known as block format. So, as opposed to the usual style of university courses which are two or three hours of contact time per week over a ten week term, these modules are delivered in four full working days of contact time, with then guided study, tutor contact, and deliverables rounding the module off.

Students will be taught – via innovative teaching techniques about the cornerstone concepts and practice of intelligence, risk, and emergency. Students will be given the opportunity to be involved in hands-on crisis and emergency simulations in order to provide a comprehensive academic and professional training experience in the field of intelligence and international security.

Assessment

The programme has a wide array of assessment methods to allow students to highlight the best of their abilities.

Content

Core Modules (Certificate, Diploma and MSc):
All students irrespective of their qualification aim will study the following modules:

Designed for

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. The programme is also able to cater for those with no formal studies in computer science but where significant interest in cyber security can instead be demonstrated.

The Course Provides:

1. Cyber Security in the UK has become a ‘tier 1’ priority alongside international terrorism and major national incidents. The serious threats emerging from the cyber-sphere are a recognised phenomenon worldwide and as such studies in cyber security are strategically important on a global scale.

2. 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.

3. The course covers all aspects of Cyber Security including network security, computer security and information security. You will learn the most important technical concepts of security—such as encryption, intrusion detection, penetration testing, access control, digital forensics and investigation, risk management, security governance and network security.

4. 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.

When you study the MSc Cyber Security and Management at Warwick, you will gain an unparalleded exposure to industry. All taught modules contain considerable input from industry experts who, through case studies and guest lectures, contribute to the design and delivery of material making for a vey rich learning environment.
