    The Programme

    Frequent news stories indicate that important systems are being compromised with alarming frequency. Recent (UK) legislation, including the Data Protection Act, the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act, and the BS7799 standard on Information Security Management (now ISO27001) are forcing companies to take information security more seriously.

    Information security requires a clear understanding of relevant technological issues and of the social/organizational issues, as well as the relationships between them.

    This programme covers these concerns by offering modules that cover security technologies, incident management and support, network quality of service as well as knowledge system architecture.

    This programme has the support of the Information Systems Audit and Control Association (ISACA) Northern Chapter to ensure that the curriculum is relevant to the changing needs of the Information Security industries and professions.

    This programme is run and taught jointly by Salford Business School and the School of Computing, Science and Engineering.

    Career Progression

    There is a heavy demand for graduates with a specialised knowledge of information security from both an organisational and technical perspective. Graduates can expect to find career opportunities with Blue Chip organisations and businesses offering bespoke security services to clients. With suitable experience, opportunities for consultancy based work also exist.
