Cyber Security and Human Factors
Cyberspace is a vast, complex and still evolving community that presents enterprise, industry and governments with on-going security management challenges, as it grows on an exponential scale. Bournemouth University's MSc in Cyber Security & Human Factors has been developed in response to the needs of the computing and security sectors worldwide. Graduates from this course will be equipped with technical know-how to protect and prevent, and the ability to assess risk and manage incidents. You can take each unit separately as CPD, building up to a full Masters should you wish to do so. The dates for each unit are given below. On this course, you'll gain an understanding of cyber security by investigating threat, vulnerabilities and impact risk, the contagion of fear, uncertainty and doubt, managing human factors in security, trust management and information assurance. We were participants in the Intensive Program on Information Communication Security (IPICS 2017) held in Greece in June 2017.
