UK Intelligence Has Endorsed Cyber Security Courses For Wannabe Spies

The UK intelligence agency GCHQ has accredited six British Master's degrees in Cyber Security as meeting its "stringent criteria" for training young Cyber Security staff. And, presumably, future spies.

For those of you interested in pursuing a career in Cyber Security that's respected by British intelligence, the courses are:

  • Edinburgh Napier University (MSc in Advanced Security and Digital Forensics)
  • Lancaster University (MSc in Cyber Security)
  • University of Oxford (MSc in Software and Systems Security)
  • Royal Holloway, University of London (MSc in Information Security)
  • Cranfield University (MSc in Cyber Defence and Information Assurance)
  • University of Surrey (MSc in Information Security)

The courses are said to "provide well-defined and appropriate content, delivered to the highest standard." The next James Bond may well make more use of a laptop, it seems. [GCHQ]
