COMPUTER FORENSICS AND SECURITY

The UK Government has identified cybersecurity as a “Tier One risk to UK interests” in their National Security Strategy. Hence, there is a shortage of skills to protect infrastructure, resources, people and computer systems from human error, and the exploitation of vulnerabilities by organised criminals, nation states or the lone hacker.

Such skills include utilising an ethical hacking approach to highlight security vulnerabilities so that they can be fixed or mitigated. Computer Forensics involves recovering intelligence and evidence from digital devices for the purposes of remediation, litigation and/or prosecution.

Given the demand for skilled graduates in the related fields of digital forensics and cybersecurity, the aim of this degree is to equip you with the theoretical knowledge and practical skills needed to enter these exciting areas of computing.

The course will:

  • Explore how cyber security protects organisational ecosystems (including computer systems) from malicious attacks, human error, and the exploitation of vulnerabilities.
  • Explore how ethical hacking approaches can be used to highlight security vulnerabilities so that they can be fixed or mitigated.
  • Develop your skills to use computer forensic techniques to recover intelligence and evidence from digital devices for the purposes of both civil litigation and criminal prosecution.
