Cyber Security Careers

Many of our graduates go onto interesting careers in Cyber Security. 

The College Careers Service collects annual employment statistics (that are compliant with Higher Education Statistics Agency guidelines) on ISG MSc students. The data is completed around six months after the student completes and latest figures from 2012 graduates show the ISG scores extremely well on both employment rates and starting salaries (especially in the UK):

  • UK Students: 100% employment, median starting salary £45,000
  • UK & EU: 91.9% employment, median starting salary £31,000
  • UK & EU & International: 83.1% employment, median starting salary £29,000
What this means is that choosing the MSc in Information Security not only results in a highly respected qualification, but you are highly likely to get a well-paid job at the end of your studies.

Please click on the links below for some videos with people working in the industry, many of whom are graduates of our MSc Information Security programme. They discuss what it's like working for their companies, how useful the MSc course was, advice for getting into the Information Security industry, discuss networking, mentoring, what types of Information Security roles there are and what skills companies look for in particular, amongst other useful information.
