Essex’s MSc Cyber Security is delivered 100% online and part-time. Students will be introduced to the key concepts, tools, guidelines and approaches used to protect an organisation’s online environment. The course goes beyond technical competencies to consider managerial and psychological concerns, while simultaneously developing essential skills such as teamwork, risk assessment and decision making. This conversion course starts with an overview of the fundamental aspects of cyber security, highlighting the trends and developments in this field.  In later modules, students will explore topics such as: fundamentals of network security and information security governance principles; an inter-disciplinary perspective involving psychology that considers the human factor in cyber security challenges; traditional and contemporary Software Development Life Cycle models and how they are affected by risk management considerations.
