Project summary

Gartner reports claim that information security spending will be rise up to 10% until 2020. Other market analyses forecast that the global security services market will be worth ~200 Billion USD by 2021. This rise in market value is currently not closely followed by a rise in the number of new, highly skilled information security services professionals either in Serbia, Europe or the World. Projections based on the 2015 (ISC)² Global Information Security Workforce Study suggest that only in Europe there might be ~379,000 unfilled information security positions in 2019. The European Parliament adopted the Directive on security of network and information systems (the NIS Directive) in July 2016, as the first piece of EU-wide legislation on cybersecurity. With the new NIS Directive the EU aims to raise its cyber resilience and it will require security experts with comparable skills and qualifications to implement the measures and controls defined by legislation. The Guide through Information Security in the Republic of Serbia published by the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) Mission to Serbia lists in its mid term goals the development of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes at universities in cyber security. The Guide also identifies among its long term goals the need to establish networks of research and development centres, centres of excellence, laboratories, technological incubators and innovative centres in the cyber security domain. It is further explained that this course of action would have a significant economic impact through the sales of information security services and products. The consortium and the project proposal were put together because of these reasons and because the HEIs from Serbia identified the need to invest into upgrading their existing capacities in this domain.

Objectives

The specific project objectives are the following: 1) Develop and implement new MSc programmmes in Information Security 2) Develop and implement a new specialist programme in Information Security 3) Develop and implement new MSc courses 4) Modernize existing BSc and MSc courses 5) Design new information security laboratories 6) Implement new information security laboratories
