M.E Biometrics and Cyber Security

Security and privacy is needed for all kinds of industries. By obtaining a Master degree in Bio-Metrics and Cyber Security one can analyze the biological data. Usually in large premises and corporate offices, biometrics is used to allow employees access to certain areas and for general ID purposes. A biometrics system goes through three basic steps:1. Acquiring data, 2. Encryption. 3. Analysis of data.Here the students will study about the technologies and processes designed to protect computers, networks and data from unauthorized access, vulnerabilities and attacks delivered via the Internet by cyber criminals. Various operations involved in this process are establishing, implementing, operating, monitoring, reviewing, maintaining, and improving an Information Security Management System.


A degree in bio-metrics combines skills from various fields such as biology, computer science, computer engineering, statistics, and electrical engineering. Due to the advancement of internet technology cyber-crimes are increasing in number. Cyber security is a field that has seen tremendous growth in the last few years. With the level of Internet espionage and terrorism rising around the globe, the demand for cyber security experts is also on the rise.Due to the increased complexity of cybercrime, the training required to enter the field is becoming more stringent as the number of cyber security jobs available continues growing. Recent high-profile hacks of government and private sector websites have been an impetus for the training and certification of new security staff.


Bio-metrics systems developers, project managers, test engineers, and security consultants work on the design and implementation of bio-metric systems for government agencies and private companies that need systems, programs, and technology in areas such as law enforcement, security, health care, banking, and e-commerce. The FBI is one of the largest employers of bio-metrics graduates. Employers currently seeking biometrics professionals also include government agencies, the military, banks, health care organizations, and technology companies. Alternatively, an aspiring biometrics engineer could pursue a graduate certificate in biometrics, which can often be earned in as little as one year. Courses in these certificate programs may include pattern recognition, data mining, computer graphics, image processing and artificial intelligence.
