Master in Cyber Security and Management (CSM)

Campus Full time Part time 1 - 3 years October 2016 United Kingdom Coventry + 1 more

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 [+]

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 Masters 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. 10 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-emersion, 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. The core modules are: Security Architectures and Network Defence Cryptosystems and Data Protection Information Risk Management and Governance Industrial Espionage and Counterfeiting Digital Forensics Plus choose 3 from the list of modules below: - Cyber Intelligence and Operations* Cyber-Physical Systems* Enterprise Cyber Security* Globalisation and Outsourcing Financial Analysis and Control Systems Leadership Organisations, People and Performance * Modules required for the GCHQ Provisionally Certified Pathway After you Graduate Graduates can expect to go on to work within corporate information - security and technology teams, consultancies, government information-security departments, management tracks in information critical organisations and cyber security related research.

MSc Cyber Security Engineering (CSE)

Campus Full time 1 - 1 year October 2016 United Kingdom Coventry

The MSc in Cyber Security Engineering is designed for those wishing to develop a career as a cyber security professional. [+]

The MSc in Cyber Security Engineering is designed for those wishing to develop a career as a cyber security professional. Why is Cyber Security important Cyberspace comprises the network of digital devices, used to store, modify and communicate information. Our world is increasingly shaped by cyberspace. Opportunities for interaction are emerging in ways, only imagined by previous generations. As the influence of cyberspace in our lives continues to grow, so does the associated security risk. As organisations worldwide harness the opportunities of cyberspace, they create huge demand for cyber security professionals. Cyber security professionals who can function at various strata within an organisation - server room, operations room, board room - you choose. Their task is beguilingly simple: enable the good and prevent the bad. GCHQ Certification GCHQ, the UK government's National Technical Authority for Information Assurance, identified the shortage of cyber professionals as a concern that needed to be addressed. Part of their strategy was to identify cyber security master's courses that would "... help prospective students make better informed decisions when looking for a highly valued cyber security qualification". At the University of Warwick, we specifically designed MSc Cyber Security Engineering to meet GCHQ's demanding requirements. MSc Cyber Security Engineering received provisional certification by GCHQ in 2015. If you are an EU or international student, you should value GCHQ certification, just as much as any UK student. The content of the course is internationally applicable. Course Structure The curriculum is divided in eight taught modules and the project. Each module is taught in a one week blocks. Typically these are spaced approximately three weeks apart. It is during this time between modules that you will complete assessed assignments. These modules are: Security Architectures and Network Defence Cryptosystems and Data Protection Information Risk Management and Governance Industrial Espionage and Counterfeiting Digital Forensics Cyber Intelligence and Operations Cyber-Physical Systems Enterprise Cyber Security The individual project commences in February. By June it will fully occupy your study time with taught modules typically finished in May. The number of taught modules and the weighting of the project in MSc Cyber Security Engineering is different from most other programmes in the WMG taught Master's portfolio. After you graduate Graduates can expect rapid career progression in within a wide range of organisations relating to cyber security in a range of roles. [-]
