Rather than fearing or ignoring cyberattacks, ensure your cyber resilience.
Head of the Cybersecurity Major
Strong demand for cybersecurity talent
Presentation of the Cybersecurity Engineering Cycle
The Defensive Cybersecurity major spans two years, the 2nd and 3rd years of the engineering cycle. While, the teaching in the second year is generic and covers a wide range of skills that allow students to learn how to design, build and manage information systems, the second year is dedicated to defensive cybersecurity. The latter was created in partnership with Microsoft, Orange Cyberdefense in order to train future talents in cybersecurity. It is the first cybersecurity course to include a unique focus on identity. The major was awarded the SecNumEdu label by ANSSI (Agence Nationale de la Sécurité des Systèmes d’Information) in August 2018.
The need for cybersecurity talent is growing in large global companies. In the Information Systems & Defensive Cybersecurity major students understand computer security and cybersecurity issues and learn to develop the technological knowledge needed to deal with cyber threats. How to build an Active Directory, an Azure Active Directory, how to develop an ISS security policy, etc. are all essential skills for a cybersecurity expert.
The objectives of the Cybersecurity Engineering Major
Mastering software engineering and system modeling
Master object-oriented and distributed programming, systems and mobile programming, web technologies and enterprise application development and integration
Acquire the essential skills in information systems management and IT project management
Understand IT infrastructures and computer networks
The IS major provides a broader understanding of digital investigation and teaches students to apply the most appropriate analysis methodology to a given situation.
