New Master’s programme in cyber security will meet market needs
This autumn Stockholm University launches a new master's programme in information security, a growing field in great need of expertise. The initiative comes from industry representatives, who also co-developed the content of the programme.
Every day, agencies and businesses are targets of cyber-attacks. As a response to the growing need for trained personnel in information security, the Department of Computer and Systems Sciences at Stockholm University is now starting a new study programme "Master’s programme in Information Security".
”My hope is to attract ambitious students from various study backgrounds such as in economics, sociology, criminology and psychology. Information security is an interdisciplinary field requiring expertise in many different areas,” says Fredrik Björck, a lecturer at the Department of Computer and Systems Sciences.
Information Security is one of the most exciting areas within IT. Global IT security spending is projected by business magazine Forbes to increase tenfold in the coming decade (from around 60 billion euros to 600 billion euros per year).
