The public focus on the field of cyber security is growing around the world. Estonia is well known for its eagerness to put innovative IT solutions into everyday use. It is a pioneer in electronic identities and electronic voting and enthusiastically adopts mobile technology, online banking and electronic government services. However, with so many e-solutions and such extensive use of the internet, attention also needs to be turned to the security issue.
The international Master’s programme in cyber security aims to provide students with skills in all aspects of the security of information systems. It gives students a unique chance to study under high-level cyber security practitioners from Estonian banks, telecoms, CERT and the NATO Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence. The programme introduces students to this exciting environment and provides them with an opportunity to conduct research within the Estonian Centre of Excellence in Computer Science.
