Overview

Throughout the Cyber Security program from Noroff School of Technology and Digital Media  students will learn the theoretical foundations required for working in this domain, and the practical application of tools and techniques used to create a secure digital environment. This includes information security, Computer Network Operations, programming and penetration testing.

We are living in a world controlled by digital systems. Smart houses contain smart meters, digital locks and home assistants. Self driving cars are being tested on our roads and the ‘Internet of Things’ continues to expand.

The digitalisation of the world around us brings a number of challenges, not just in adapting to the amazing pace of change, but how to secure those systems that are so vital to our everyday lives. The critical infrastructure that underpins our society - power, water, food supplies and now information all relies on some form of digital system.

This means cyber security experts are needed to work across all subject domains including science, industry and government, working to secure and protect virtual digital assets. This is the domain of the Cyber Security Specialist.

Careers

The expertise and skills of this bachelor program are sought after as cyber security issues continue to become increasingly significant across all sectors. This has been driven over recent years by the development and adoption of new technology in the race to exploit the digitalisation of commercial and domestic products and systems.

According to Abelia there is a worrying deficit of people with strong technology skills in Norway. The distance between needs and available expertise ranges from 24 to 113 percent. The best-case scenario suggests that by 2030, one in four ICT positions will be vacant.
