billion by 2020. Gain the essential knowledge and skills needed to become a cyber-security IT professional. Take advantage of
our relationship with Cisco and graduate with CCNA certification, recognised worldwide by industry.

Cyber security is a major priority for governments and organisations throughout the world. Never before has the world been so
vulnerable to attack. With government and organisations increasing their cyber protection budgets, it’s never been a better time
to invest in the industry. We’ll work together to explore how organisations and individuals can take action to protect themselves
online from cyber-attacks.

In this multi-disciplinary programme, we’ll begin by understanding the fundamentals of cybercrime together with networks and
operating systems. You will understand and recognise the threats to an organisation and its infrastructures. Introductions to
software principles and secure software development are explored.

The strategic deployment and implementation of cyber security within an organisational context is studied in secure systems
architectures, whilst aspects such as network security and data security are examined. Embedded within the degree is CCNA
outing and Switching and CCNA Security syllabus; adding significant value with industry leading skills and recognition.

You will also develop transferrable skills in project management and quality assurance which are critical for cyber security
professionals. You’ll focus on aspects of risk management, security governance and legal aspects of cyber security as well as
related concepts of ethical computing.
