Computer technology has forced everyone to change the way they do things. Even the criminals have adapted to the information age. That is why honest businesses and citizens need the professional services of those with a Master of Science (MSc) in Cyber Security.

What is an MSc in Cyber Security? It is an advanced degree that is suitable for those who already have completed an undergraduate program in computer science or information technology. It focuses on issues related to crimes committed using computer technology. Not only do students learn about the technical methods favored by criminals, they also study the complex legal and social issues facing the digital world. Topics of study include security architectures, network defense, data protection and risk management. Some programs also incorporate robust overviews of peripheral issues such as industrial espionage and digital forensics.

After completing one of these degree programs, graduates can design and implement security systems that meet the requirements of businesses. They are able to analyze existing systems and test for security flaws. They streamline the security procedures to conform to business processes and find ways to limit conflicts between the productive functions and data protection methods. 

Most of these programs require at least two years of additional study beyond the undergraduate level. Costs will vary. Those interested should contact the admissions departments of institutions under consideration for specific information about fees and tuition.

A career as a network security expert awaits those who successfully complete one of these degree programs. Some work for a single large corporation or government organization. Others find employment with network security firms that handle the needs of multiple contracts at a time. Graduates fill a variety of roles as security analysts, network penetration testers, vulnerability analysts and security architects. Some work for companies that design and build new network safety hardware and software products. Others find rewarding careers as freelance cyber security consultants.

It is important to look at as many options as possible before deciding on a course of study. For working professionals, online classes offer a quality education that fits within busy schedules. International students also benefit from the flexibility of distance learning. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
