About the course
The threat of cyber security attacks is increasingly apparent to individuals and organisations across the globe.
From hacking to phishing, scamming to grooming, and botnets to cyber-terrorism, the variety and ingenuity of exploits appear to expand constantly.
In this context, this programme addresses system vulnerabilities and the preventative measures that may counter cyber-attacks, including steps to repair systems weaknesses, prevent repeat occurrences, and collecting and examining digital evidence using a variety of digital and mobile forensics tools such as FTK and Cellbrite.
You will also develop a detailed understanding of comprehensive cyber risk management practices for ensuring overall security.
This course is also available as a two year masters with an industrial placement year.
The embedded industrial placement offers a unique opportunity to apply the skills learnt on real-life projects. This, in turn, prepares graduates of the programme for successful careers in both the Information Security & Digital Forensics professions.
