Course summary

The Cyberspace Operations programme is designed to develop professionals to support manoeuvre in cyberspace, in contested operations and as part of integrated planning.

Who is it for?

Students will be UK Military and other Government personnel charged with supporting operations in cyberspace, in their current or anticipated role. These staff may also be one or more of the following:

Managers or leaders in a cyber environment who need to understand information risk and respond to cyber threats;
Procurement staff commissioning critical or sensitive projects;
Policy and planning staff interested in computer network and security operations;
Personnel interested in social media and associated concepts such as cyber mobilisation;
Those charged with accreditation and assessment of security measures.

Why this course?

The course will specifically focus on responses to serious present and emerging threats in the information domain. The course enables the student to understand the context of the cyber domain. Whilst a technical understanding is an advantage, this course enables students from a variety of backgrounds to understand the drivers and constraints within cyber operations and how many roles need to integrate to provide an effective and cohesive operation.

The course specifically evaluates the current doctrine and planning procedures across a variety of military and civilian contexts. It also evaluates the impact of cyber on control systems, leadership and decision making in the command and control environment.

Your career

This qualification will take you on to become one of the next generation of individuals who can support manoeuvres in cyberspace, in contested operations and as part of integrated planning. Additionally, it provides you with both the theoretical and practical understanding of cyberspace within an organisation, thereby enabling you to become one of the next generation of leaders.

Students can also exit with PGDip and PGCert awards.
