COME TO THE SAFE SIDE OF THE FORCE. STUDY CYBER SECURITY.

Become a hacker, but in a good way! With your Cyber Security degree programme at IUBH, you will be able to use your IT skills for something beneficial: You will design complex IT networks for companies and authorities so securely that no one will be able to get in. As a "defence expert", you should know the basics of modern operating systems and be familiar with distributed applications in the cloud and methods of computer forensics and data analysis. Of course, based on the systematically progressing TTP documentation (Tactics, Techniques and Procedures) of the attackers. 

In the practice-oriented bachelor’s degree programme in Cyber Security, you will become a threat hunter with leadership potential. You will also be able to understand the perspective of cybercriminals and then lever it out accordingly. You will work intensively on the design, programming, and maintenance of security systems. In order to do so, you will learn the basics of computer science, computer security and programming with Python. In addition to incident response and computer forensics, you will learn aspects of pen-testing and reversing. You will be able to deepen your expertise through courses such as host- and software forensics in computer security or cloud computing in the field of computer science.  

But your degree programme in Cyber Security offers even more, especially when it comes to current topics such as computer science, artificial intelligence, and advanced data analysis. IT law and IT service management are not neglected either. This is how you will become an expert in the field of network and data security. 

Information on accreditation and state approval can be found on the sub-page of the degree program.

YOUR CAREER OPPORTUNITIES. BE ON THE SAFE SIDE.

As a cybersecurity specialist, you will secure excellent career prospects across all sectors. For example, as: 

Cyber security consultant

As a cyber security consultant, one of your jobs is to protect the valuable data of a company and its customers. That means that as an internal employee or external service provider, you are responsible for combating digital dangers such as viruses, cybervandalism, or industrial espionage. Especially today, when companies are increasingly using mobile devices and cloud solutions, protecting large amounts of data is becoming more and more complex and critical.

ETHICAL HACKER / PENTESTER

Ethical hackers or pentesters are information professionals who crack IT systems after companies have instructed them to do so. They actively try to circumvent existing security settings. In doing so, they reveal how vulnerable an (operating) system or a web application is - a demanding and complex job that requires a high degree of creativity.

SYSTEM/NETWORK/FIREWALL ADMINISTRATOR

In this job, you are responsible for the planning, installation, administration and maintenance of the firewall and network infrastructure. In the process, you develop network and security concepts. In addition, you take care of the coordination and implementation of projects in the area of networks and security. As part of your tasks, you find solutions to optimise the IT infrastructure.
