Overview

Learn how to identify new and existing cyber threats and determine methods and processes to minimise attacks. Cyber security is a priority for governments and organisations throughout the world. We’ll work together to explore how organisations and individuals can take action to protect themselves online from cyber-attacks.

We’ll begin by understanding networks and operating systems, how they work and the strengths and weaknesses of them. You’ll then think like a hacker, working from the inside out, as you recognise the threats to an organisation and its resources, and learn to implement and test secure systems.

Focusing on the strategic deployment and implementation of Cyber Security within an organisation, you’ll cover all aspects of Cyber Security including network security, computer security and information security.

You’ll apply your knowledge and skills in a real-life context. In collaboration with our partner University, students will have access to extensive industry tool sets such as Kali Linux, Wireshark, Nmap and Burp Suite. You’ll write your own Metasploit modules, automate social-engineering attacks, bypass antivirus software and turn access to one machine as you take total control of the enterprise.

You’ll gain skills in communicating information to higher levels of the corporation’s managers, giving you confidence to present your invaluable problem solving solutions and strategic security planning in any organisation.

We know there is a worldwide shortage of skilled graduates in Cyber Security so you will be ahead of the game as you further your career and make a real impact on a society that is increasingly dependent on the internet and IT technology.
