As we generate data at an ever-increasing pace, the security of this data has become paramount. In the 21st Century, data has become a necessary commodity, which has value in isolation and more so when viewed as a larger data set for trends and habits. Data is key to business functioning, and protection of this data is key to the ongoing success of the digital economy. You will become equipped with technical knowledge, intellectual know-how, management capabilities and practical skills that will enable you to succeed in meeting the cyber security challenges facing modern organisations. As the systems that both generate and consume data grow in capability and complexity, and as the Internet of Things continues to expand exponentially, the need to protect the data created, stored and transited across public and private networks intensifies. The need to protect this data increases with each advance in technology, as does the requirement to have suitably qualified cyber security practitioners. This course is supported by a vibrant research environment within the Centre for Cyber Security at BCU and by traditionally strong industrial links which currently include Cisco, Oracle, IBM, Microsoft and BT.
