We live in a connected world. But are we secure in the 'cloud'? How can we best protect sensitive data from attack? You will learn to answer this question on the IT & Mobile Security Master’s degree programme, by finding new solutions for applying and using information and communication technologies safely.
As the ICT sector is completely international, the programme is taught in English and specialists from abroad deliver a majority of the lectures.
The primary focus of the Master of Science in IT and Mobile Security at FH Joanneum University of Applied Sciences is on technological aspects of internet security. Firewall technologies, forensic examinations of computer systems and the identification of malware, such as viruses, are just a few of the subject areas which await you during your studies.
Cryptography and its applications allow you to secure networks and prevent computer systems from being infiltrated. You will also work on developing secure software as well as back-up and recovery strategies to minimise the data lost in attacks and network failures. You will also become familiar with the basic principles of software engineering, needed to develop secure software systems.
