City courses capture attention of attendees
City's presence at Infosecurity Europe 2014 (29th April to 1st May) was rewarded with increased footfall and enquiries about its new postgraduate degrees.
Exhibiting at stand C98 during Europe's premier information security event, academics from the Computer Science Department spoke to numerous visitors, providing them with information about new MSc courses in Cyber Security and the Management of Information, Security & Risk.
Addressing the policy component of the new Cyber Security course in his interview with deputy editor of Infosecurity magazine, Drew Amorosi during the exhibition, Professor of Dependability and Security, Professor Kevin Jones, said:
"Cyber Security policy is just as important as Cyber Forensics. Effective policy in this area is a business enabler and makes for a well-rounded, experienced professional".
Senior Lecturer in computer science, Dr Ilir Gashi, was pleased with the level of interest in the new degree programmes:
"City's presence at InfoSecurity Europe 2014 was very productive. We were pleased with the number of visitors to our stand who were interested in discussing our postgraduate courses and various strands of research related to information security. A large number of visitors were also interested in attending our Cyber Security seminar on the 11th June.
