In this course, you will learn the tools and techniques to design and evaluate secure software.You will gain experience in understanding the ways that hackers as well as general users think in order to predict their behaviour and use your applied technical skills to expose weakness in systems to ultimately build and maintain secure digital environments.Our innovative approach to your learning opportunities will see you engaging in a series of practical, industry focused tasks, aimed at ensuring you graduate with the full range of relevant, up-to-date skills necessary to succeed in the cyber security profession.You’ll be supported by academics with considerable experience in the security industry.
