In today’s digitized world, where most of our activities are related to online platforms, the information security has become more essential than ever. Most countries have launched national strategies for the implementation of cyber security. In these, the education and training of information security professionals get particular roles. The National Cyber Security Centre created a common framework for cyber security education in the United Kingdom for the universities offering degrees in information security. The aim of this paper is to examine and compare the British cyber security degrees. The first chapter examines and compares the British universities and degrees from a theoretical aspect, including the necessity of these programs. The second chapter examines the degrees from several aspects based on the data of the Scopus database, with a special focus on the thematic modules, and the academic activities of the 1,650 examined university instructors.
