Why this postgraduate course?
Cyberattacks have become one of the biggest threats to any environment with valuable digital information. In addition, the loss or theft of data due to infrastructure insecurity can seriously affect an institution's image.

A swift reaction to a cyberattack will minimize the negative consequences and contribute to a possible investigation of the case. However, a lack of professionals with the skills that this program provides gives cybercriminals significant advantages, as they can see how most environments have gaps due to little or no monitoring of their systems, and the lack of experts capable of reacting to an incident.

The objective of this postgraduate course is to train students in order to understand new cyberthreats and make decisions to react to them, and the necessary protection and detection measures to minimize the impact of possible attacks.

The postgraduate course will provide plenty of information about the latest threats - both general threats and those aimed at a single entity (Advanced Persistent Threats), as well as strategies to manage them and minimize their impact.

The postgraduate course has an outstanding teaching team, with an excellent combination of practical professional experience and innovation, in the field of technology security from a technical perspective, as well as in the legal and policing field. We will also have contributions from internationally renowned speakers, who will tell us about their vision of the sector in the present and the future.

Practical classroom sessions
Knowledge is applied to a real or hypothetical environment, where specific aspects are identified and worked on to facilitate understanding, with the support from teaching staff.
Solving exercises
Solutions are worked on by practising routines, applying formulas and algorithms, and procedures are followed for transforming the available information and interpreting the results.
Case studies
Real or hypothetical situations are presented in which the students, in a completely participatory and practical way, examine the situation, consider the various hypotheses and share their own conclusions.
Success stories
Outstanding business knowledge and experiences with high added value acquired during an outstanding professional career are presented and shared.
Tutorship
Students are given technical support in the preparation of the final project, according to their specialisation and the subject matter of the project.
Assessment criteria
Attendance
At least 80% attendance of teaching hours is required.
Level of participation
