What is the Master’s Degree in Cybersecurity?

In an environment of continuous digital transformation, dominated by an increasing number of cybersecurity attacks and toughening regulations related to privacy and data protection, the demand for engineers with a good training in cybersecurity is huge and in constant growth.

The Master in Cybersecurity of ICAI responds to the real needs of the different sectors where security is one of the fundamental pillars of the business, in a scenario where cybersecurity directly impacts any sector of activity, size and type of organization, and even on a personal level. This program has been created at the request of the collaborating companies to cover the needs in all security aspects that each sector finds most relevant. It is a master's degree mainly face-to-face, with the participation of ICAI's own faculty and the best security specialists from all business sectors, the public administration, and the state's security forces
