Master i Cyber Security

Cyber security

Due to the increasing digitalization in Danish society and in the rest of the world, focus has increased on IT security and the various risks companies, authorities, and citizens face. As a result, DTU Compute Continuing  Education has created a Master’s program in Cyber Security, so that companies and authorities have the  opportunity to qualify and train IT security staff and managers to deal with the increasing pressure in relation to cybercrime.

The Master’s program is especially relevant for you, if you are an IT security manager, product or project  manager,  IT architect or network architect/administrator.  But the program can be followed by anyone with an IT/digital background who wants a broad introduction and solid professional foundation in cyber security.
