This course has been developed in response to the demand from industry for cyber security professionals who have a systematic understanding of the principles and technologies underpinning today's information technology systems. This course builds on typical undergraduate computing courses, or those degrees with a high degree of computing content, whose graduates are looking to develop new knowledge and skills in cyber security. This course is designed to help the student gain an understanding of how cyber security systems are designed and constructed, and of the impact of technology into an organisation. The course will also give you the skills you need to work effectively in a business environment, and provide a solid basis for cyber security research.
