The advancement in ICT has literally changed the way businesses, trading and retailing, and banking being conducted. Internet-based or online transactions are common phenomenon in these sectors. Safeguarding organizations' sensitive and critical information is by no means an issue which is to be taken lightly. Although in Malaysia the trends in online transactions, e-banking and information security are not uncommon and are widely practiced, but the level of awareness in information and computer security is still low. We have the least number of computer security experts compared to many other countries such as Taiwan, Australia and Singapore. The Master of Computer Science programme has been formulated to meet the aspiration and to fulfill the nation's needs for certified computer security and forensics experts. This programme is designed for working professionals and also academicians who plan to pursue advancing their knowledge in computer sciences and to be specialised in the field of information security or computer forensics. Its flexible structure makes it possible for students to pursue their area of interest besides taking the required University courses and one project paper, all of which are tailored to produce excellent graduates for their current and future positions helping to track down criminal evidence and to protect the valuable employer's data.
