Become a Cyber Security and Consulting specialist
Attacks by hackers and viruses pose a real threat to companies and organisations. Experts are needed who know about the latest IT security issues, otherwise databases, systems and networks are constantly at risk.
Due to the high demand for IT security specialists with management expertise, we have created our new study programme "Cyber Security Consulting"
Students of the programme get an extensive overview of the concepts and fundamentals of Cyber Security issues and learn about methods and best practice examples in IT security management via hands-on projects.
Current standards and types of information security and other management systems are part of the curriculum as well as case studies, the principles of auditing and an internship. Due to the modules in risk management, general management, consulting and leadership and the many projects, students become cyber security specialists who can take up leading and advisory positions and are able to drive change in organisations.
During the interdisciplinary programme students have the chance to gain relevant industry insights thanks to the in-depth modules on growth sectors such as "Energy and Utilities", "Transport and Logistics" as well as "Public Administration and Healthcare".
