PROMIS – Customized courses for professionals in security 

A new world is emerging as information, data, digital communications, and software-intensive products and services are fused in developing new services and applications. This rapid development holds tremendous potential for improving the technical foundation of a digital society. But, it also wrestles with challenges related to security.

Security is part of every industry from banking, automotive, power utility, games, and social media. It’s paramount, whether you are a small startup company offering
a social media app or a large enterprise building windmills. It’s not a “solvable” area but an ongoing race that companies face
keeping products secure and data safe. By investigating state-of-theart and state-of-practice, the Professional Master in Information Security, PROMIS, addresses the Swedish industry’s challenges and future needs through customized online courses for professionals in security.

PROMIS focuses on data and software intensive product and service development security as a field. The courses range from how to embed security in the initial engineering of a product/service to work correctly even when under attack, as well as how to use, offer, and operate products/services without compromising security.

Closely tied, and inspired by, challenges and future needs of our industrial partners, our PROMIS courses are relevant from different perspectives: from managers and decision- makers to engineers and security experts. They are developed in co-production with our 35 industry partners that need your skills, and are specially designed to suit professionals who need to be able to combine work and studies. All courses are web-based and at a part-time study pace, and allow you to bring your own cases and problems to reduce participation costs while maximizing your end-value.

PROMIS offers courses within a broad set of areas:

  • Computer and network security
  • Security in software development and testing
  • Intrusion detection and prevention
  • Malware analysis and digital forensics
  • Risk management and regulations

A total of 18 courses will be offered in PROMIS, but all courses are not given all semesters. Stay updated about our courses and course in course instances here.
