Information Security and Privacy

Appropriate security measures are an essential part of any modern enterprise. A detailed understanding of the key threats and the essential techniques for ensuring security, privacy, and trust are fundamental requirements for successful information systems. Emerging software deployment and use, through the use of data outsourcing such as in cloud computing and with the increasing use of social media platforms, opens up significant security and privacy issues which future information technology (IT) professionals need to be aware of. Professionals in this field are well placed for a wide variety of employment opportunities.
