King's provides a multi-cultural environment with the chance of meeting students from around the world. KCL also gave me the opportunity to network socially and make lifetime friends as well as getting involved in study groups. The libraries and other facilities are well equipped and staffed. Additionally, the campuses could not be better located for any student looking to experience London.
Due to the flexible nature of my course, I could work part time and study full time; this enabled me to fund my studies and gain industry experience while studying. King's has a high employment rate for its graduates because it prepares and equips students for the wider industry. I plan to look for jobs in firms with security concerns where I can apply the knowledge and skills I have gained. King's does not just provide materials for learning; it also provides the ideal environment for personal and professional growth and achievement.
Informatics is concerned with the study of the representation, storage, processing, and communication of information. It has many different aspects, including Computer Science, Artificial Intelligence, Robotics and Telecommunications. The Department of Informatics at King's seeks to address fundamental challenges and problems in these areas.
The MSc in Computing and Security is unique in that it balances the most topical issues in information assurance, computer and network security, cyber-forensics and cyber-crime with an equal mix of more traditional topics such as advanced algorithms and data structures.
I have been doing research and consultancy in many aspects of information security since 1996, much of it in collaboration with the Department of War Studies at King's, the Computer Forensics Research Group at the University of Hong Kong, the UK Ministry of Defence, and BAe Systems.
I am currently doing research in cyber-warfare, digital forensics, the analysis and interpretation of cyber-crime statistics, denial of service detection and mitigation, and malware detection.
Due to the exponential rise in information security breaches and the urgent need to develop increasingly effective cyber defences for government, industry and commerce, there is an almost inexhaustible demand for well qualified and competent post-graduates from the information security industry.
