Program Description

The Master Program in “Cyber Security” has a main objective to produce engineers who possess a global vision of information systems security, and who are capable of designing and implementing solutions to mitigate risk and prevent hostile attacks aimed at compromising sensitive data, assets and, consequently, the daily operations of a company. 

To ensure the information systems security of an organization on a day-to-day basis is a challenging, vast and complex undertaking.

Whenever information technology is used to improve an operation or provide a new service, the new solution is often susceptible to outside attacks seeking to access, modify or damage confidential data.

The cost to a company from such attacks could be devastating and include not only reputational damage and/or a tarnished image but also possibly losing the competitive edge on important R&D projects, or worse, a complete shutting down of its operations.  

In this constantly evolving context, the goal of the Security program is to give students the theoretical knowledge and applied tools to understand the various aspects of security in all its dimensions.
