Why a Master in Cybersecurity?

Security is everyone's business

Professionals in the field must keep up with ever-changing threats and risks. Companies need security managers who understand the impact cybersecurity has on the business and lead teams with compelling security strategies.

The situation...

Cybercrime damages could cost the world $6 trillion annually by 2021, and spending could reach more than $1 trillion cumulatively from 2017 to 2021. ('Cybercrime Report' by Cybersecurity Ventures)

Numbers that speak for themselves:

2014: 1 million unfilled cybersecurity jobs globally. 2021: number will grow to 3.5 million openings. Cybersecurity unemployment rate has plummeted to 0% and it's expected to remain there in the coming years. (Cisco)

Cybersecurity is a whole new world on the rise

Cyberattacks are “natural disasters” to society

Damage and destruction of data, theft of intellectual property and financial data, infrastructure disruption, fraud, damaged reputation... it affects individuals, companies and society as a whole. Holding the right cyberstrategies and managing risk and threat response is key for the digital economy to remain open and secure.
