The Cyber Security Analysis course offered by KTH Royal Institute of Technology teaches methods for analyzing threats, risks and defense mechanisms of large systems, which can streamline security work and improve protection.


Key Facts:

Companies today have thousands of software based computer systems that all are depending on one another in a large complex network, a system-of-systems. That IT attacks succeed to a large extent due to this complexity. 

A company needs to understand the whole system while an attacker only needs find one way in. At the same time, there is a large set of attack types that are utilised and plenty of proposed defence mechanisms.

After passing the Cyber Security Analysis course offered by KTH Royal Institute of Technologycourse, the student should be able to:

  • model threats in large-scale computer systems (including software, networks etc),
  • simulate attacks in large-scale computer systems
  • carry out risk analysis based on a model and simulation
  • describe which defence mechanisms computer system can have
  • report and present models, simulation, risk analysis, and defense strategy for a given system

in order to

  • understand and explain which threats a specific system can have
  • understand and explain how attacks work and propagate through a system architecture
  • argue why certain risks should be prioritised
  • choose the right defence to decrease risk.

Programme Structure

The program focuses on:

  • the complex IT landscape of today by creating models of such.
  • which attacks that are utilised today to cause harm and how these can propagate through a large network.
  • what defences there are and when they are best suited against different attack types.
  • how risk can be calculated and used to prioritise security work.
