The issue of cyber security continues to be a major issue for both individuals and large corporations with a reported 117,339 incoming cyber-attacks every day (The Global State of Information Security Survey 2015).

What will I study?

Incidents of cyber-crime have increased in the UK by 48% from 2013-14 according to PwC’s Global State of Information Security Survey 2015, costing the UK up to £27bn a year. While their 2016 survey has reported a significant shift in the way organisations are taking action, including their willingness to invest in security.

Our MSc Cyber Security will teach you how to handle security incidents, identify new and existing threats and determine methods to minimise them. We will also provide an in-depth coverage of the fundamental concepts, principles and technologies for network security.
