2.9 ICT & Management and Security
Offering, managing and securing ICT is quite a challenge, especially with the increasingly new user devices, uses, new ICT technology and a variety of security requirements that are demanded of systems. Quickly and effectively preventing breakdowns has also become a major aspect of our digital world.
At ICT & Management and Security students learn what is done to secure that all systems are properly operating. Students gain insight into how they have to work in multidisciplinary teams in order to ensure that all systems (software and hardware) function properly and how to include changes and new developments. This is why we work in multidisciplinary teams as much as possible for the main assignment. Students will learn from and with each other and will use their knowledge and expertise and expand it to make a project successful. This gives a complete image of what has to happen in the background to have end users work with the right information and the right information systems.
The work students will do in the main assignment will also fit in well with their basic study programme.
For instance, a software-engineer will learn via this specialisation to get a broader view of the software developments by including the rollout and maintenance of software in the main assignment. In addition, security aspects are already taken into account at an early stage in the development of software. We also look at development methods such as DevOps.
Via this specialisation the Media designer learns to establish awareness campaigns for various target groups, arranging security communication for the proper use of ICT and user support. The Technology student learns how manufactured products are rolled out and maintained with a focus on security aspects and about the lifecycle of manufactured products. Just think of the Internet of Things (IoS) and security. Finally, the Business student learns to make the link with IT service management. Attention is paid to making analyses for information protection (including cost/benefit analyses) and advice is given on how service management and security can be embedded in an organisation.
A data leak or an IT outage can cost a company a lot of money or damage it’s reputation. That’s why there is a growing demand for skilled professionals in the field of ICT security. Students are trained to become an ICT Service Manager, Information Security Officer and ICT Innovation Manager. Next to that, the training is also a valuable investment for IT consultants.
