Hi,

I'm currently doing a MSc. in Information Security at the Royal Holloway College, which is part of the University of London. The ISG (Information Security Group) has an enormous reputation and the course is great!

The idea of the course is to be a foundation for the infosec professional. So, instead of learning "on the fly" you can stop and organize the concepts in your head, being able to discuss issues from secure application development to ISMS, information security management and its relevance to
various industries.

It is a 1 year program full time, but also have the option of being 2 years part time, which gives the advantage of combining experience on the market (as you work) and the theoretical foundation. I found this a great way to
come back to college and learn a little more.

More info at http://www.isg.rhul.ac.uk/. I hope it helps.

Subject: MS in information security

Hello,

I noticed that the question of 'CISSP or degree' got a lot of feedbacks and comments. I am also considering more education in order to enter security field. I already have BS degree from good school and working for a IT company working with various applications. However, I have always wanted to be a little bit more technical and be exposed to more research-like environment. Not sure if I want Ph.D., but definitely looking at one of those MS in information security. Georgia Tech and several other reputable
universities offer such program.

After working almost 2 years in industry, I know that experience is really important and that I can acquire the knowledge myself through many sources although I don't go back to school to do it. On the other hand, the idea of getting higher or specialized education and degree is really appealing. Also, since my current work does not have anything to do with security, getting more education might offer me a better chance of getting in to security field than studying on my own, getting some certs and try to
convince companies to believe that I know about security.

Any opinions welcome
