Topics for MSc in Computer Science with Cyber Security

I am currently undertaking a computer science with cyber security MSc and have been trying to find topics of study for the independent research project which would be interesting to me and I am struggling and am looking for a pointer in the right direction.
I would like to undertake something that is in some way practical in nature to keep it interesting, and the topic has to include some elements of security.
My interests through work are mainly developing serverless applications on AWS and event driven applications and cloud computing but I am really struggling to find something that is both interesting and isn't purely research based and theoretical.
Any pointers would be gratefully received, I still have another four months until I need to write the project proposal but I have already been trying to find something that sparks my interest for the last month or two with little success.

Dear Paul Ockleford,
I propose the following topic for the master's thesis on cybersecurity issues: Applications of blockchain and machine learning technologies and other Industry 4.0 technologies as part of improving the cybersecurity risk management of IT systems operating in computing cloud computing environments, in systems based on the Internet of Things, Big Data, and smart technology solutions etc. The research topic may also concern the improvement of techniques and risk management of cybersecurity of information systems used in internet banking and mobile banking.
Best regards,
Dariusz

How does computer science relate to cyber security?
Computer science is a broad field that involves the study of computers and computing. Cyber security, a subfield of computer science, involves protecting networks, systems and programs from digital hacks. In order to do this work, cyber security specialists rely on their deep understanding of computers and networks.
All cyber security undergraduate degree programs will cover the basics of the field, and some of those core courses you take may include:
  • Information Systems.
  • Security Systems.
  • Information Technology.
  • Cyber Defense.
  • Ethics, Law & Policy.
  • Data Communications & Networking.
  • Digital Forensics.
Is cyber security a part of computer science?
CYBERSECURITY DEGREE Cybersecurity is a subset of computer science, and in today's computer-reliant world, it has its own field of study and degree programs. Those interested in cybersecurity usually earn a bachelor's in computer science.
What are subjects in computer science?
Major topics include in any CSE undergraduate degree course are Operating System, Design and Analysis of Algorithm, Programming Languages, Microprocessor, Computer Software, Database Management System, Mobile Communications, Cryptography and Network Security, Performance Evaluation

Cyber security of IoT devices! You have the opportunity to experience the simplified IoT operating systems and conduct some hands-on attacks for wireless connections for example. This type of applied research work can be as practical as you want it to be.

Like so many, I am shocked and saddened at seeing war break out in Europe. My thoughts – and those of the ResearchGate team – are with the people of Ukraine and everyone affected.
ResearchGate is an international company, whose purpose is to enable scientists across the world to work together openly and collaboratively, regardless of borders or nationality. We have people from over 40 countries on our staff of around 200, and being based in Berlin, we are profoundly aware of the human cost of conflicts, the echoes of which have shaped and scarred our home city. We join with the international community in condemning the actions of the Russian state.
We have been asking ourselves: What can we do?
From today, we will offer free advertising space worth $2.5 million on our network to humanitarian organizations working to respond to the crisis. ResearchGate benefits from over 50 million visitors every month, and we hope this initiative can help raise funds and awareness for those organizations that are having direct impact and need support.
We also want to use our platform to highlight the response from the scientific community. Personally, I have found the messages of support from scientists everywhere to be truly heartfelt, and I would like to highlight some of the community initiatives I’ve seen here:
Additionally, I’m posting here some of the organizations responding to the crisis and actively soliciting donations:
To help gather more support for these initiatives, please consider sharing this post further (you don’t need a ResearchGate account to see it), and I will continue to update it with other initiatives as I find them. You can also click “Recommend” below to help others in your ResearchGate network see it. And if you know of any other community initiatives that we can share here please let us know via this form: https://forms.gle/e37EHouWXFLyhYE8A
