Presentation of the specialization


The current global context, together with IT market trends and demand in this market, require
Co-ordinated training of experts in Cybersecurity. The global situation,
cybercrime is on the rise, the need to train and educate staff in the cybercrime
information on how to counter cyber threats,
and a clear and concise exposition of methods for mitigating cyber attacks, leads to
că programul de masterat în domeniul securității cibernetice își găsește locul într-un context bine definit
and concise, with increasing market share and demand.

The Cybersecurity Master’s degree programme aims to inoculate
generic cybersecurity concepts to help familiarize students in
cursul de masterat cu conceptele fundamentale care definesc securitatea
in the information environment, such as malware, cyber attacks, zero-day exploitation, etc.
Next, the knowledge set continues with exposure to associated cyber threat management
the most common areas of the IT market where cybersecurity has a major impact, not just
financially, but also in terms of the associated infrastructure: in the environment
private, virtualised/cloud and academic environments.

The consequences of such an impact are also immediately visible in business. Year 2017
has brought a significantly higher economic impact of cybersecurity, by 23%, in terms of
financial view compared to 20163. Key security issues in this context, such as
detection, containment, recovery and investigation have all suffered, but trends vary and
are becoming worrying: malware still dominates today’s cyber attacks,
and ransomware applications have doubled in number in just one year, which
which demonstrates that security is becoming not only important but also imperative for
protection of personal data and to avoid significant costs as a result of the
security breaches.
