The security of computer systems is increasingly important, as the
use of information systems is now widespread in the lives of
individuals, business and society. The significance of information
security and the demand for relevant skills has been emphasised
recently by high-profile incidents concerning the privacy of personal
data and security of financial information.
Possible Career Options
Career opportunities are excellent and the demand for specialists in
this area continues to rise as companies become increasingly dependent
on computers and the internet. On graduation, you will be equipped for
careers that require in-depth knowledge of technical security issues.
Potential careers include systems administrator, security penetration
tester or information security consultant, and strongly relate to the
roles of Information Security Analyst and IT Security Coordinator.
With education to master’s degree level now the recognised
professional level of competence, graduates will be better placed to
pursue careers in industry, or to continue their interest in computer
science through research at PhD level.
