Are in interesting in understanding the evolving security threats to end-users of technology in order to prevent hackers, computer viruses, and large-scale cyber-attacks?
The rate and prevalence of these threats means that government agencies, police authorities and defence organisations need people who can efficiently create systems to combat them.
On this course, you will explore the evolving threat landscape and gain applied skills in building and managing secure systems. In addition to core computing skills, you will learn the fundamental concepts of psychology, business, law, and management that relate to cyber security in technology.
With the threat landscape constantly developing, this course will teach you to be a strategic thinker and be a step ahead of the hackers – understanding the threats and implementing the solutions to combat them.
