Course Summary

Computer systems are frequently compromised by the efforts of opportunistic hackers. In many countries, legislation is forcing companies to take information security more seriously. Information security requires a clear understanding of relevant technological, social, and organizational issues, as well as the relationships between them. The Masters in Information Security is a specialist version of the MSc (Computing Science) which will provide you with a thorough grounding in computational aspects of information security together with experience of conducting a substantial development or research project focussed on Information Security techniques, preparing you for responsible positions in the Information Security and IT industries. The MSc in Computing Science is accredited by the British Computer Society (BCS) and the Institution of Engineering & Technology (IET).

Our specialist MSc graduates in Computing Science, Software Engineering and Information Security are recognised by the British Computer Society (BCS), the Chartered Institute for IT, for the purposes of fully meeting the further learning academic requirement for registration as a Chartered IT Professional (CITP Further Learning) and partially meeting the academic requirement for registration as a Chartered Scientist (CSci). These programmes have also been awarded the Euro-Info Master Label.
