Department: Portfolio of Master Programmes in Project Management
Module Description: Cybercrime is increasing exponentially. National infrastructure, organisations and projects assets are constantly exposed to the threat of cyber-crime. Also the cost from cybercrime to enterprises and the public sector is estimated to rise to billions of dollars. As a result, the management of information systems security is critical for both project and business thus, this module is designed to offer the opportunity for students who may have a background interest in the management of information systems to argument their knowledge with an in depth understanding of the emerging cyber security and project risk. The module is also intended to up skill future project and risk managers to manage enterprises’ information systems security and procedures against cybercrime. The module will also further expose students to current knowledge and prepare them for emerging information security developments in the context of IT Project Management
