Computer Security and Resilience MSc


Course Description

Course Overview

This course combines teaching and research in security and system reliability with human factors, verification and distributed systems. It gives you an integrated view of the technologies relevant to developing trustworthy systems.

You will develop the skills to design and assess computing systems to be secure and safe in the face of failure or attack. You will have the opportunity to assess a real system, such as a cybercrime incident room.

Computer security and resilience are dynamic areas of computing science. Security is not just about cryptography - it's about understanding the flow of information. Resilience is the capacity of a system to recover from damage, whether caused by errors made during software design, by accidental misuse, by human error or by malicious attack. Analysing and designing secure and reliable systems involves taking all these factors into account.
