The registration for the 2016 start of the Cyber Security Academy (CSA) master’s degree in Cyber Security was opened this week. This programme is aimed at technical professionals, legal specialists, and policy makers in the field of digital security. It can be followed part time, and lasts two years.

Leiden University, Delft University of Technology, and The Hague University of Applied Sciences have joined forces in education for professionals in the field of cyber security. The Cyber Security Academy Foundation (CSA) was launched on 6 February 2014 and is in line with the ambitions to further develop The Hague Security Delta  into a leading European security cluster with strong and diverse expertise and knowledge in the field of security. The programme takes place at the HSD Campus. The main reason behind the launch of the CSA is the growing demand on the labour market for specialists who can contribute to increasing the resilience of governments, organisations, and citizens on the basis of a coherent vision and approach. The current security issues are complex and the problems are continuously changing. Cyber criminals are still “more innovative” than businesses and governments. Mainstream education still offers too little training and research in the field of cyber security.

A comprehensive vision on the approach to issues related to cyber security —based on the consensus that sustainable strategies for digital security solutions call for a coherent approach of technical, legal, and administrative aspects — forms the basis of the master’s programme. Together with a team of lecturers from the above mentioned knowledge institutes and experts from a variety of private and public organizations, Professor of Cyber Security Jan van den Berg realised this innovative programme.
