MSc Cyber Security has been designed in collaboration with some of the UK’s cyber business leaders. We prioritise the ‘complete picture’ to give you the insight and toolkit needed to make effective operation decisions that protect organisations at risk of cyber attack.

You begin by building knowledge of the fundamentals of cyber security before examining existing and emerging defence and offense strategies. Equipped with a good understanding of vulnerabilities and attack vectors, you then explore how to build an active cyber defence armoury. Modules on law and regulation, systems of governance, operational resilience and risk assessment provide the conceptual context needed to engage the practical realities of cyber security management.

You’re assessed by a combination of reports, presentations, and set exercises. Tasks such as table top scenarios and cyber wargames give assessment a real-world edge, while providing insight into practical methods of communicating complex cyber security topics to key stakeholders.

Teaching methods include lectures, seminars and discussion forums alongside a wide range of practical activities such as scenario simulations that require continual action. Our learning methods are designed not only to help you build critical knowledge, but also to cultivate the interpersonal skills and disposition you need to operate effectively as a future cyber security leader.
