The need for increased global security has grown exponentially in recent years. Whereas traditional security measures were mostly about securing people and places through a variety of physical and human measures, today’s range of threats are far more diffuse.
Technology and the World Wide Web have not only brought societies around the globe closer together, they are both directly and indirectly responsible for creating vulnerabilities. Those vulnerabilities manifest in many different forms that span a spectrum of issues ranging from cybercrime, political and social upheaval, to recruiting would be terrorists. Moreover, as the world has become reliant on technology, the risk to personal and organisational information has also become vulnerable.
Identity theft, corporate espionage, and electronic transactions have all become vulnerable to those that wish to exploit that environment. The Security Management programme is designed to prepare individuals to work in this vocation whether it be in the public or private sectors.
