About

Cybersecurity (Online) from Munster Technological University is taught fully online and is designed specifically for computing professionals working in the IT industry. The modules are assessed by online continuous assessment. 

Overview

Cybersecurity (Online) from Munster Technological University is hands-on in nature and provides the learner with detailed working knowledge of the techniques and tools used in the field of Cybersecurity. Online lectures are delivered to students 2 evenings per week. Lectures are streamed live over the Internet and recorded to facilitate easy playback for learners. The full time offering is taught on the Bishopstown Campus, and some elective modules may be delivered online. 

Cybersecurity can be defined as the protection of information and information systems from unauthorised access, use, disclosure, disruption, modification, or destruction in order to provide confidentiality, integrity, and availability. 

Opportunities

Today, Cybersecurity is becoming a function of increasing importance for the continued operation of commercial entities. The increasing level of interconnectedness of information networks and the reliance of business models on this interconnectedness has resulted in a network (currently the Internet) that has over a yottabyte of information stored, much of which is unsecured. This continuing trend is predicted to strongly increase the importance of Cybersecurity within most multinational entities.

This programme aims to fill the ever increasing skills gap in this area and delivers material that follows the most current practise. Upon successful completion of this programme the student will both understand and deploy the most advanced methods to protect information at rest, in transit, and at work.
