Specialised Masters NIS It’s a very specialised and highly technical one-year educational program in Network and Information Security taught in English. This intensive curriculum fuses academic study with a hands-on internship component. Starting in September 2016, gain practical technical skills and prepare yourself for an exciting career in Network and Information Security or in cyberwarfare techniques! Presentation of the NIS Specialised Masters The Specialised Masters “NIS” trains experts in information and systems security. Our graduates learn to approach security challenges from the attacker’s point of view while gaining a comprehensive vision of information systems – and of information itself – as a whole. This innovative approach makes our graduates better able to protect those systems by reacting quickly and effectively to the wide variety of security challenges and crises arising more and more frequently in today’s world. The Specialised Masters “NIS” targets candidates at M2 level, or at M1 level for candidates with professional experience in computer science. Candidates need to know how to program, know the basics of computer networks and possess a solid level of English (courses taught exclusively in English). The Specialised Masters “NIS” is particularly interested in attracting candidates at the managerial level who wish to specialize in information security. After successfully completing the programme, graduates are able to evaluate the security of information systems, define a plan to protect the systems that have been entrusted to them, design and implement the appropriate technical solutions and get the solutions up and running. Our graduates work as operations managers, engineers, consultants or team leaders for projects in information and network security, development of secure applications, reverse engineering, active audits and risk evaluation. Organisation Strengths of the NIS Specialised Masters 1 – A degree recognised in academia and in industry In French higher education, a Specialised Masters is a qualification that comes after a Masters degree and is of at least 2 semesters in length. It includes theoretical courses, a personal research project in industry and a professional thesis presented in front of a jury. This degree is accredited by the “Conférence des Grandes Ecoles”, the accrediting body of an elite network of French engineering and business schools (similar to the American “Ivy League”). The Specialised Masters (MS) label is a collective registered trademark belonging to the “Conférence des Grandes Ecoles”. It was created in 1983 to meet the need of French industry to recruit graduates possessing skills in highly specialised areas, targeting very precise sectors. The degree guarantees the high level of professionalism, the thoroughness and the technical level of the courses delivered. It allows students to develop their strengths and provides a springboard to professional success. 2 – Comprehensive training The Specialised Masters “NIS” is a demanding programme that goes from ISO 27001 through secure programming, economic intelligence, Windows security or microchip programming, all the way to Reverse Engineering, virology, cryptology, and forensic techniques. 3 – Teaching methods adapted to the needs of students, to meet the needs of industry Created in 2009, the Specialised Masters “NIS” has graduated more than 100 students. The programme combines the state of the art in information and systems security with the specialised teaching expertise of ESIEA and is continually enriched by the research performed in the CNS laboratory, whose members all publish in the most important international conferences on security and hacking (Black Hat, CCC, CanSecWest…). As is the case for all of the specialised degrees delivered at by ESIEA, the teaching methods used for the Specialised Masters “NIS” recognises its students’ former studies and accomplishments and is based on constant hands-on projects, in which students can actively manage their own learning. To accustom the students to situations reflecting the realities of industry, crisis scenarios are simulated in real time in our security laboratory, often with competing teams which alternately defend or attack a system or an application. The academic semester is rounded off with a comprehensive exercise over two weeks, giving students the opportunity to practise on real systems within the framework of agreements between the CNS laboratory and members of industry. 4 – Lecturers who are recognized experts in the field of security The Specialised Masters “NIS” calls upon more than 50 experts to deliver its coursework, including designers of specialised tools and founders of start-ups. 5 – An internationally recognized research laboratory The CNS laboratory at ESIEA is one of the rare actors from the field of higher education cited in Senator Bockel’s July 2012 report on cyberdefence. The laboratory’s research team in operational cryptology and virology is also the designer and project manager of the DAVFI project, involving the development of an open-source antivirus “made in France” and financed by the state as part of the national “Investments in the Future” programme. Practical information about the NIS Specialised Masters Who can apply to the NIS Specialised Masters?
