The course will provide the knowledge of the latest cyber security principles, practices, tools and techniques, taught by a team of specialist staff in purpose-built cyber security laboratories.

Today, cyber-operators are required to have an enriched background, drawing elements of practical experience from fields as diverse as sociology, psychology, network security, computer science, software engineering, reverse engineering, and - of course - the law. We have a diverse number of placements with companies from the security industry, high tech crime units and government organisations.
