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.

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.
