BSc Cyber Security aims to give students a fundamental understanding of how to protect organisations, networks, IT systems and individuals against Cyber attacks and Cyber threats. This course covers all the main topic areas required by the British Computing Society for an accredited Cyber Security degree, and includes understanding of Cyber threats and attacks, and the criminal sub-culture which is increasingly profiting from those attacks, how to manage information and the risks to that information, practical approaches to implementing physical and process controls to reduce information threats, and the design of secure systems and products which will enable businesses to withstand Cyber attacks. The course also includes aspects of Cryptography and Forensic Computing, and students will have the opportunity to engage with the latest software and forensic approaches. Several staff at The University of Wolverhampton are engaged in Cyber security research and work closely with industry to ensure that the course will produce graduates who have the skills which industry needs. Employment in the area of Cyber security is predicted to increase five fold in the next two years, and there is already a severe shortage of trained graduates who are able to work in this area. Therefore, the likelihood of gaining well-paid employment at the end of your degree is extremely high.
