Cyber attacks come in third place when the World Economic Forum lists the biggest threats against humanity in the next five years. There are also reports showing large shortcomings in the society’s abilities in managing and handling these threats. In our Master Programme for Privacy, Information Security and Cyber Security you will learn to develop, shape and become an integral part of the digital society of the future, where information security and privacy is in the forefront.
Our entire modern society relies on digital information. Corporations and governments are handling more information than ever before. A society with an increasing share of electronic information is completely dependent on systematic information security management focusing on the information itself
as well as a reliable infrastructure. Changes in the society put demands on IT-security and data protection. Our personal integrity is threatened when services are personalised and all digital activities are registered and analysed. Information and cyber security has become an important requirement in order
to face the increased online threats. Increased access to large amounts of information means that the right to privacy can be compromised or used for identity theft, among other things. Therefore, there is a need to protect personal as well as organisational information.
