The MSc Information Systems Security is one of a kind. We are the only university in the world to offer a course in this area which includes the BSI accredited ISO27001 lead auditor certification.

We have developed this course in conjunction with the SANS Institute and the British Standards Institution (BSI) providing you with an excellent level of skill and knowledge that is required in the industry.

The course is ideal for those already working in an information technology environment or those wishing to specialise in information security.

The course is available full-time or part-time providing you with the flexibility to study around your personal and working commitments.

Most modern organisations face security risks that threaten their valuable assets. It is not easy to design secure information systems that defend against these threats. It needs a wide range of skills and knowledge of existing technologies and security principles, which can only be acquired through practical experience and education.

The course provides the environment for you to develop the professional skills and experience needed technically, and as a manager.

On this course you• develop the knowledge, understanding and skills to work as a computing security professional
• learn the concepts, principles, techniques and methodologies you need to design and assess complex networks, systems and applications
• develop the practical experience you need to plan, perform and direct security audits of information systems to the level required by standard security frameworks
• develop the effective and appropriate communication skills you need to be a security professional

Free training and certification exam
Thanks to our association with BSI Learning, you are entitled to attend the BSI ISO27001 Lead Auditor course and take the exam which allows you to become accredited as a BSI certified lead auditor.

From BSI• ISO27001 Lead Auditor

BSI courses are delivered by approved BSI trainers and qualified ISO27001 lead auditors. As part of the course you receive the same course material as the official BSI training courses.

Technical and managerial focus
The course has been designed to focus on both the technical and managerial aspects of information security. The technically-focused modules involve you exploring a range of systems, tools and techniques at the cutting edge of technology. The managerial-focused modules give you an appreciation of the role information security has in an organisation and how it can be implemented and managed.

Optional modules allow you to specialise in the areas you want to develop your skills. These specialised modules can then be further enhanced with SANS training which carries a fee to cover the cost of online materials including MP3s. Due to our relationship with SANS, we can offer you the SANS training at a discounted rate.
