Course summary

Enrolling on the programme will enable you to take the first steps to becoming a Cyber Security professional.You will engage with the latest technologies to understand and explore hacking in an ethical context. You will use vulnerability scanners and penetration testing tools to detect, establish and mitigate organisational security risks in a simulated environment. You will also learn about networks and how to secure them from intruders, and understand laws and processes that are applicable to the area of network and data security. Businesses are reliant upon interconnected systems and networked infrastructures, and as these systems continue to grow in size and importance, the number of job roles in computer networking increases as a consequence.The need for organisations to protect themselves from the legal, social, ethical and economic ramifications derived from data loss or security breaches is symbiotic with this reliance.This Foundation Degree programme has already produced graduates who have found employment in the area of network security or networking generally.The combination of network security with network engineering produces extremely well qualified graduate cohorts with broad, commercially desirable skill sets and qualifications. It produces self-directing IT professionals with a wide range of career pathways available to them. Along with the technical skills gained, you will develop other skills such as an appreciation of lifelong learning and the value of transferable skills.
