IT Security

IT security prevents unauthorized access to computers, networks and data. Through IT Security programmes, students strive to gain a detailed understanding of the interdisciplinary aspects (technical, business, management, policy) of information security, assess the information security risks faced by an organization, manage the development, acquisition and evolution of a secure information infrastructure and gain expertise in both theory and practice of information security. The programme also provides students with the theoretical understanding and skills they need to be leaders in the design, implementation, and evaluation of the concepts, techniques, methods, and policies for ensuring the security of information. Graduates of IT security are qualified for responsible software development positions, not only in the IT sector but also in many other sectors such as education, engineering, health services, financial services, government, manufacturing, retail, and transport.
