Cyber degrees certified

The Government intelligence agency GCHQ, as the National Technical Authority for Information Assurance (IA), has certified six more masters’ degrees in Cyber Security.

The new certified masters are available at the University of Kent, Queen’s University Belfast, Royal Holloway, University of London, University of Southampton, University of South Wales and University College London (UCL).

This is the third time that GCHQ has awarded certification of such degrees in Cyber Security, and brings the total to 18 certified masters’ degrees from 14 universities. Applications for certification were assessed by a panel of advisers from across industry, academia and government. The universities all had to meet the assessment criteria which demand a well-defined and appropriate degree content, delivered to the highest standard. This year, for the first time, GCHQ has also awarded certification for masters in digital forensics and Integrated Masters in computer science and cyber security.
