      Description

      Cyber space comprises all the interactions with all the networks of digital devices used to store, modify and communicate information, across all time. It is global in reach and vast in scale, extending far beyond the Internet. Its interactions are with people, with the physical environment, and with other digital devices. It is a pervasive enabler in modern society. Most things are possible; not all are desirable; context is everything.

      You will learn how to construct robust software. You will learn how to store data over time and communicate it over distance. You will learn how computer systems are organised. You will learn the capabilities of cryptographic techniques. You will learn the processes and procedures that provide assurance that things are as they should be. And you will learn the mindset, tools and techniques to discover the shortcomings of cyber systems, duly constrained by ethics and the law.

      The course has a strong technical focus so that you understand precisely how the digital parts of cyber systems function. However, the role played by people, processes and the physical environment in achieving cyber security is also a critical part of your study. Taken together, you will learn how to harden the security posture of an organisation's cyber systems.

      You will be studying on a course that has received provisional GCHQ certification as a Bachelor’s Degree in Cyber Security. You will be studying at a University that is recognised as a GCHQ Academic Centre of Excellence for Cyber Security Research.

      To take into account

      · What are the objectives of this course?

      Cyber Security seeks to enable the good and prevent the bad in cyber space. For you to contribute to this task, you will learn a broad range of theory and practice. Most things will be viewed from two perspectives: what should happen, and what does happen. Many cyber security challenges lurk in this gap between concept and reality.

      · Who is it intended for?

      Early career roles could include: Network Security Administrator, Forensic Analyst, Threat Analyst, Penetration Tester and Secure Software Developer. Later career roles could include: Security Architect, Security Assessor, Malware Reverse Engineer, Incident Response Coordinator, Cyber Security Consultant, and Chief Information Security Officer.
