The main goal of this unique course is to prepare professionally trained graduates for industry. They will be able to understand the security issues faced by modern connected businesses and develop secure and reliable computer and network systems. Privacy and data protection form a key element of the programme. The course comprises both advanced computer science and particular developments in security and reliability. The course identifies the objects to be secured which may be hardware, software or information; the effects of security challenges such as disclosure or destruction; the nature of the challenges which could be denial of service, accidental or deliberate; and the protection measures which may be technological or administrative.
This course meets a new and growing demand for specialists in this area. In particular, the MSc in Internet, Computer and System Security course will draw graduates wishing to enhance their undergraduate studies in computing with advanced study of reliability and security to equip them for senior positions with responsibility for the IT-based security of an organisation.
