About Information Security & Privacy at Cardiff University

The MSc Information Security and Privacy addresses the key security issues that are faced by global communications and information systems.

The programme provides a mix of business context with core security, trust and privacy issues that challenge the IT sector. The course builds on previous skills in computer science, to strengthen understanding of this emerging area.

As well as studying themes such as trust and identity and forensic investigation, security techniques and information, network and cyber security, you will gain an understanding of the e-Commerce and business environment. This combined business/security approach provides valuable training for interacting with organisations, and understanding their business functions in a deeper context.

Using case based analysis, you will have the opportunity to learn about forensic approaches to investigation across multiple platforms.
