NYU to Launch an MS in Cybersecurity Risk and Strategy

Program to be offered jointly by the Schools of Law and Engineering; aimed at executives

New York University (NYU) has announced the launch of a new MS in Cybersecurity Risk and Management for executives.

The new one-year long program will be delivered jointly through a cooperation between NYU's School of Law and the NYU Tandon School of Engineering. The new degree, according to NYU, is "built around the interdisciplinary training and perspective needed to address a new category of threat."

“Too often those with the capabilities to fend off or deal with the aftermath of cyberattacks operate in silos, resulting in both readiness and response capability being severely compromised,” according to NYU Law Dean Trevor Morrison.

With news reports practically every day discussing malware, ransomware, data breaches and more, it's apparent that cybersecurity is an increasingly important area of law. Indeed, in the past few years a number of law schools have been addressing the emerging needs of legal professionals needing to be familiar with the cybersecurity space by launching LL.M. programs in Cybersecurity.

Curriculum-wise, the new MS in Cybersecurity Risk and Management will cover a range of topics, including courses in Cyber Crime, Cybersecurity Law and Technology, and Information Privacy Law, among others.

The program will be 12 months long and classes will take between 10 to 15 hours per week to complete. The Cybersecurity program will be delivered mainly online but will include three brief residency modules that will include both online and in-class learning.

To apply for the program, interested candidates should be experienced professionals and can demonstrate that they've had increasing levels of responsibility in cybersecurity, strategic risk management, operations and analytics, or enterprise management.


For those who need additional training in technology or policy, summer bridge programs will be available.
