Adapting to new threats and finding new defenses will be your day-to-day challenge.
Online piracy is a growing and universal concern for people, companies and governments. As hackers grow more agile, cybersecurity professionals become indispensable to every industry. The rapidly growing demand for high-level cybersecurity experts has inspired l’X to dedicate a full program to it by creating the Cybersecurity: Threats and Defenses Master.
The two-year graduate degree, fully taught in English, is designed to be professionalizing. While you acquire the tools and techniques during the first year, the second year focuses on “real world” application. Throughout the two years, students also get the opportunity to connect with industries, thanks to two internships and on-the-ground experience with researchers from l’X and visiting lecturers.
