Master of Science in Cybersecurity Risk and Strategy for Executives

Offered jointly by NYU School of Law and NYU Tandon School of Engineering, the MS in Cybersecurity Risk and Strategy is a one-year program intended for experienced professionals from a range of backgrounds who seek to deepen their understanding of cybersecurity risk and strategy. Cybersecurity—both prevention and response—frequently requires coordination between public- and private-sector organizations and expertise in technology, law, and policy. This program will create managers with the integrated expertise needed to play a leadership role in the field.

Graduates of the MS Cybersecurity Risk and Strategy program will gain a comprehensive understanding of integrating the business, regulatory, and technical dimensions of cyber risk management. The program will cultivate the security mindset and lay the foundation for developing a high-reliability IT organization, understanding security concepts from a managerial point of view, including policies and assurances, and recognizing vulnerabilities and exploits. Through the integrative capstone project, students will be expected to develop an integrated cybersecurity strategy and plan for implementing it.  The program will focus on developing leaders equipped to address the strategic and operational challenges of running an enterprise in the digital era.
