The specialist programme in Cyber Security at DTU aims to equip students with the proper knowledge and skills to protect an organisation's assets (both intellectual- and physical property) through system security analysis; application of prevention, detection and ethical response techniques and to ensure business continuity by installing and operating suitable recovery mechanisms. In particular, students should be able to:
- Conduct a security analysis of an organisation, which will include risk analysis, definition of threat- and attacker models, implementation of applicable counter-measures.
- Implement continuous monitoring to enable real-time detection and collection of security data that may be used in forensic security analysis.
- Participate in forensic analysis of cyber incidents and assist in recovery of operations.
- Participate in the formulation, update and communication of organisational cybersecurity strategies and security policies.
The specialist programme in Cyber Security is defined in the context of the Computer Security study line on the M.Sc. in Computer Systems & Engineering program. It meets all the requirements of the Computer Security study line and follows all the rules defined for that study line, but students who pass the set of courses that have been identified in the specialist programme in Cyber Security may request a separate certificate to show that they have obtained these specific competences as part of their studies.
Students requesting the Specialist Programme in Cyber Security Certificate, should meet the general requirements of the Computer Security study line and have followed the courses listed in the left menu this page.
