Why this programme?
The identification, auditing and appropriate management of assets enables entities to minimize the risks related to possible cyberattacks.

A Burning Glass study concludes that the demand for information security professionals has increased 3.5 times faster than other IT professions, and twelve times faster than other professions.

Students who complete the postgraduate course in Cybersecurity Planning and Management will be able to plan, implement and manage of a company's security processes, in order to minimize risks and establish contingency policies in case of incidents.

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.
