Cyber Security is growing in importance as more and more of what we do moves online. Both public and private sector organisations are employing more cyber security professionals, both because they want to secure their information, but also, increasingly, because they are required to do so by new legislation.
The University of Glasgow School of Computing Science is delighted to announce the availability of a new programme designed for graduates who have a good non-computing degree and an interest in cyber security. On the security side it teaches general cyber security techniques with Cyber Security Fundamentals and Cryptography and Secure Development. Enterprise Cyber Security covers security in business organisations, while Human Centred Security, Cyber Security Forensics and Safety Critical Systems (protecting critical infrastructure) rounds off this part of the programme.
On the IT side, students are taught to program with a Programming course and Team Project, and also learn about Databases, Computer Systems and Software Project management. The programme finishes with a Cyber Security based summer project. No prior computing education is required.
