Program description

The MSc in Cybersecurity & Management is built upon three main skillsets: engineering, management, and the professional base, with the objective of training managers who will be capable of grasping the new stakes pertaining to Cybersecurity.

In fact, on every occasion that computer technology is used to improve or provide new services, it also gives potential attackers with their various motivations new opportunities to access, modify and damage sensitive information.

The MSc Cybersecurity & Management enables students to master risk analysis and design and support the implementation of an information systems security policy.

In the face of increasingly prevalent cyberthreats, technical skills must be allied to managerial skills in order to provide all-encompassing solutions so as to better support organizations.

A unique training

The teaching approach within this training program is multi-disciplinary, tackling various managerial and technical areas: leadership, risk management, and the legal aspects and politics of cybersecurity for the managerial domain.

The aims of the technical part are to master the challenges posed to cybersecurity regarding malware, forensic analyses, cryptography, intrusion tests as well as new technologies, the internet of objects, clouds, and industrial systems.
