Gartner, Inc. forecasts that 20.4 billion connected things will be in use worldwide by 2020, with the global market projected to reach a value of more than £1 trillion. In time, these appliances will exchange information automatically, co-ordinating what they do without human intervention. The Internet of Things is a key enabling technology for broader paradigm shifts in areas such as smart cities, smart health, automotives, industry 4.0 and circular economies.
As the connections grow, devices will exchange data and personal information on an exponential scale, presenting all organisations with ongoing security management challenges.
This course will produce professionals with strong technical, creative, and intellectual skills. You will share the core modules with the MSc Internet of Things, whilst the specialist units provide a route into Information Assurance and Cyber Security within an IoT context.
A Bachelors Honours degree with 2:2 in any subject or equivalent
International entry requirements
If English is not your first language, you will need to provide evidence that you understand English to a satisfactory level. English language requirements for this course are normally:
IELTS (Academic) 6.5 with minimum 6.0 in each component, or equivalent.
This course will produce professionals with strong technical, creative, and intellectual skills. You will share the core modules with the MSc Internet of Things, whilst the specialist units provide a route into Information Assurance and Cyber Security within an IoT context. You will be able to choose to learn how the cyber-threat landscape shapes the development of socio-technical IoT systems and understand how to manage security events and incidents.
Mobile & Wireless Networks: Mobile and wireless networking technologies are ubiquitous nowadays. A key issue facing enterprises today is how to harness the potential of mobile and wireless technologies to enhance the operational effectiveness of the business and illuminate potential opportunities. This unit reviews the broad spectrum of relevant technologies (e.g., WiFi, ad hoc networks, cellular networks, etc.), examines their operating principles/protocols and relevant standards as well as the use of these networks in different context and scenarios. The unit also explores the main challenges faced in these networks as well as how they fit into the latest networking paradigms.
Wireless, Sensor & Actuator Networks: You will explore the operating principles, standards, design and configuration of WSANs. Future and emerging paradigms – such as Mobile Crowdsensing Systems, and technologies such as Wireless Power Transfer in ad-hoc networks will also be addressed.
Security and Privacy in IoT: Smart objects, IoT applications, and their enabling platforms are often vulnerable to security attacks and changing operating and context conditions that can compromise the security of some of their components (e.g., local sensors, network components, application-level components). They also generate, make use of and inter-relate massive personal data in ways that can potentially breach legal and privacy requirements. This unit will develop your capability to understand and produce security architectures of IoT-related networks and systems.
Research Methods & Professional Issues: Research requires a structured and disciplined approach at all stages. We will help you to develop key research skills in many areas from project proposals and planning to critical analysis of research findings, academic writing, and dissemination. Ensuring you give due consideration to professional standards and ethical issues in research.
Individual Masters Project: You will develop an understanding of the characteristics and implications inherent in the solution of a complex, real-world problem within the context of a substantial, independently-conducted piece of work.
Human Factors: Soft systems, human factors integration (HFI), training, trust, organisational learning, information and knowledge management will be examined through case study analysis. You´ll also conduct situational awareness and workloadmeasurements in trials, experiments and exercises, and apply user experience (UX) techniques to evaluate interactive systems.
Security by Design: Security must be addressed as early as possible when building a system or planning organisational change. However, security never seems to be a driving concern when engaging in innovation. When security is addressed, we discover how hard building security in really is. In this unit, you´ll have an opportunity to build security into the design and specification of secure systems, and the broader socio-technical context these fall into.
Enterprise Digital Forensics: As globalisation and the Internet have led to increasing integration, the opportunities for unauthorised exploitation have also grown. You´ll develop competencies for constructing plans to capture and analyse data for an investigation of potentially abnormal activity.
Security Information & Event Management: The unit covers aspects the current and emerging threat landscape, incident handling and operations of Computer Emergency Response Teams (CERTs) and the importance of information sharing for incident management.
Cyber Security: Develop skills and knowledge for cyber security. Material, lectures and seminars in this unit capture concepts of cyberspace ecosystems and the security of socio-technical systems. The unit also covers the life cycle of cyber security mechanisms, including the design, development, management and, most importantly, how they´re sustained.
