MTech Programme in Computer Science and Engineering (Information Security)

Information security relates to the protection of IT assets against the risks of loss, misuse, disclosure or damage. Information security management comprises of the controls that sensibly manages these risks. By pro-actively managing information security, we can reduce the likelihood and/or the impact on our information systems from a wide range of threats including but not limited to theft and exploitation of information, deliberate and accidental disclosure of information and destruction or corruption of information stored on computers whether deliberate or accidental. The MTech programme in Computer Science and Engineering [Information Security] is envisaged to train graduates in Computer Science and Engineering with the necessary skills to design and develop protocols and techniques to secure information
