There has never been a better time for you to enter the computer forensics and cyber security profession. A recent report issued by Parliament on Cyber Security Skills and the UK’s Critical National Infrastructure identified a UK crisis resulting from a high demand and low supply of talent. Brexit and Covid-19 has resulted in an increase in Cyber crime activities. On this degree, you'll delve into many aspects of computing and will develop the skills, confidence and enthusiasm needed to help to tackle challenging computing forensics and security issues. You'll learn how cyber security protects organisational ecosystems (including computer systems) from malicious attacks, human error, and the exploitation of vulnerabilities. You'll also explore how ethical hacking approaches can be used to highlight security vulnerabilities so that they can be fixed or mitigated. Cyber security incidents can have a number of outcomes, including civil litigation or criminal prosecution. You'll be supported to widen your understanding and develop skills to use computer forensic techniques to recover intelligence and evidence from digital devices for the purposes of both civil litigation and criminal prosecution. After completion of your second year you will have the opportunity to undertake year in industry to allow you to develop your knowledge and skills in a business or industrial setting. This allows you to build up the practical skills desired by employers and to demonstrate your capabilities on your CV. Location This course is run at our Canterbury Campus in Kent.
