By Gary Cutlack on at

You could, if you fancy it, become an official expert in defending the nation's systems and businesses from cyber attacks, thanks to a series of six Master’s degrees announced by the government and GCHQ this week.

The degrees are being introduced as part of the National Cyber Security Strategy push, which, to help breed a new generation of computer safety warrior, has accredited six universities with the necessary approvals to begin offering the security expertise qualifications.

Edinburgh Napier University will soon begin offering an MSc in Advanced Security and Digital Forensics, the University of Oxford is doing an MSc degree in Software and Systems Security, while Cranfield University is running an MSc in Cyber Defence and Information Assurance and more.
