Cyber security is a major priority for governments and organisations throughout the world. Never before has the world been so vulnerable to attack. With government and organisations increasing their cyber protection budgets, it’s never been a better time to invest in the industry. We’ll work together to explore how organisations and individuals can take action to protect themselves online from cyber-attacks.

In this multi-disciplinary programme, we’ll begin by understanding the fundamentals of cyber crime together with networks and operating systems. You will understand and recognise the threats to an organisation and its infrastructures. Introductions to software principles and secure software development are explored.

The strategic deployment and implementation of cyber security within an organisational context is studied in secure systems architectures, whilst aspects such as network security and data security are examined. Embedded within the degree is CCNA Routing and Switching and CCNA Security syllabus; adding significant value with industry leading skills and recognition. You can progress your learning with us to full certification of both CCNA Routing and Switching and CCNA Security. You will just need to pay for your exam fees.

You will also develop transferrable skills in project management and quality assurance which are critical for cyber security professionals. You’ll focus on aspects of risk management, security governance and legal aspects of cyber security as well as related concepts of ethical computing.

We encourage you to enrol on our sandwich degree that includes a one-year work placement in the computing industry. This greatly enhances our student's employability as you’ll gain skills in communicating information to higher level enterprise managers, giving you the confidence to present your problem solving solutions and strategic security planning within any organisation.

You’ll apply your knowledge and skills in a real-life context, in our specialist labs which are equipped with tools such as Kali Linux, Wireshark, Nmap and Burp Suite. You will apply fundamental skills in penetration testing, automate attacks and exploits and bypass antivirus software.
