MSc Cyber Security

The UK is a globally leading digital economy, yet its prosperity is reliant upon an ability to secure businesses, data and networks from cyber threats. Costs of cyber security failure are substantial for companies and nation states, with often hidden consequences for wider society. To manage risk, the cyber sector needs rational and resilient people that hold an industry-informed, holistic understanding of current issues and future directions of travel.

This Cyber Security course focuses on the operational level decisions that business and public sector leaders need to make in order to develop, monitor and evaluate cost effective cyber risk management strategies. You’ll learn to formulate digital-era leadership techniques that deliver genuine business benefits.

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.

Job Opportunity Potential

We’ve got lots to share with you and to help we have split our work into three elements which will support you with:

  • Exploring your options
  • Gaining valuable experience
  • Progressing your ideas and career plans

At Bath Spa we believe you are continually exploring your options and experiencing different pathways to progression, but that this journey is not linear. It keeps on going throughout your time with us and when you leave. Some of our services cross all three areas and allow you to explore, experience and progress all in one, such as The Bath Spa Award.

We encourage you to read resources and attend events across all stages of Explore, Experience and Progress as they will offer beneficial insight and development opportunities regardless of the current stage you are at in your career journey.
