Stealing personal and corporate data is an extremely lucrative business for criminals. Cyber ​​security is therefore of great importance for companies and institutions. In order to meet the increasing demand for skilled workers, the Niederrhein University of Applied Sciences has been offering a Bachelor in Cyber ​​Security Management since the winter semester. The consecutive master’s course is new from the summer semester 2021. The application is possible until March 26th.

"The students deal with the design, development, selection and use of IT security procedures and technologies in companies and in administration," says Dr. René Treibert, Professor of Business Informatics and Head of the Institute for Information Security Clavis. What is special about the course is that the students not only learn the technical aspects of IT security, but also combine them with management knowledge.

Through the use of project management and leadership methods, future graduates can plan and manage safety-relevant and cross-departmental projects. “Our graduates will be important employees for companies. You can control and implement procedural and organizational information security, in IT operations and in information technology, ”says Dr. Gudrun Stockmanns, professor for practical computer science.

But not only the course content is innovative. The team also opted for modern and practical approaches to impart knowledge. “With us, the students learn using practical application examples. In small groups, we work on real attack scenarios and real problems from the economy, ”Professor René Treibert explains the teaching concept. The course is offered by the Bonn-Rhein-Sieg University of Applied Sciences and the Niederrhein University of Applied Sciences within the framework of the Cyber ​​Campus NRW.
