Online piracy is a growing and universal concern for people, companies and governments. As hackers grow more agile, cybersecurity professionals become indispensable to every industry. The rapidly growing demand for top cybersecurity experts has inspired l’X to dedicate a full program to it by creating the Cybersecurity: Threats and Defenses Master's.
This two-year Master's degree, fully taught in English, is designed to equip you with the skills required for the business world. The first year of the Program is devoted to acquiring tools and techniques, while the second year focuses on real-world applications. Throughout the two years, students also get the opportunity to connect with industries, thanks to two internships and on-the-ground experience with researchers from l’X and visiting lecturers.
Students of the Cybersecurity: Threats and Defenses Master's Program learn how to address different issues in cybersecurity, whether directly or by creating adapted software. After graduating, they have access to a wide range of high-level jobs, from security auditors to system developers and security architects, to name a few.
