The purpose of this track is to provide students with a holistic view of cybersecurity issues, from a software, hardware or management point of view (according to the chosen methodological area).

In addition to the mandatory basic course of “Computer Security”, the track includes an advanced course in cryptography and its hardware/software implementation (along with the “logic and algebra 2” course, which is complementary to it), a course on legal implications of IT and computer forensics, and the doctoral course “Advanced Topics in Computer Security”, which includes a broad overview of the most current challenges in security research.

At least one course in Artificial Intelligence is included, and others are advised (as AI and ML methodologies are often applied in cybersecurity). Similarly, courses on embedded and distributed systems (typical targets of evaluation for cybersecurity specialists) are suggested.
