What will you learn?

Cyber Security is an important and growing area of work for computing professionals. Any organisation that has a computer network or uses the Internet has a potential security risk and will need people with specialised skills to help protect their systems and data. You may also find yourself working for a specialist consultancy firm that provides such a service to smaller organisations. Computer systems store, process and communicate a wide variety of data. Much of this data is private and improper access to it can result in significant costs to an organisation or the person that owns the data. Securing computer systems against malicious attack or even against inadvertent damage is vital to any computer system. This programme gives you the knowledge and skills to enable you to prevent attacks and inadvertent damage to computer systems. The first year provides a general grounding in computing skills and introduces you to the fundamental aspects of computer security. You will gain technical skills in both computer networks and computer systems that you will build on in later years. In the following years, you will develop technical skills in network security, and hacking attacks and defences as well as in biometrics and biometric based security systems. In the final year, cryptography and malicious software are covered in some detail. Practical work in the specialist modules and the final year project will involve the development of appropriate security software. As part of studying network security you will cover the CISCO networking syllabus for Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) Routing and Switching and then the follow on CCNA Security syllabus. You will have an opportunity to take the industry-standard ECCouncil Ethical Hacker Certification. We have placement students in a variety of organisations, including GCHQ, Police High Tech Crime Units, Cyber Security and Digital Forensic businesses.

Core areas of emphasis

Career prospects

TEACHING AND LEARNING Different people learn in different ways and therefore the programme utilises a range of different teaching methods and situations – lectures, problem-based tutorials, practical laboratory sessions, group-based activities, project work, virtual learning environments, seminars, workshops (skills-based) etc. – that best deliver the specific learning outcomes of the modules. In all classes emphasis is placed on active, experiential learning usually based around a case study, or specific crime/event based scenarios. Students will be actively challenged during tutorials to explain or defend a particular viewpoint/finding/analysis, as the students may in the future be expected to defend their expert witness testimony within a legal environment. The use of industry standard packages, such as Encase and Forensic Tool Kit (FTK), .XRY and Biometric hardware and software will be used with real life case studies to provide good exposure to students. With a dedicated and self-contained laboratory, with its own private internal network and containing some of the latest equipment and software, students will be able to practice and develop their practical and troubleshooting skills as required. Learning approaches are chosen to be compatible to the method of delivery and can include: case studies, investigations, seminars, resource based learning and independent reading. A wide range of teaching, learning and assessment approaches are used and are seen as beneficial in exposing the student to diverse approaches. The emphasis is on developing students as confident, independent learners. Students are encouraged to access a variety of materials, journals, text books, e-journals etc., as part of their independent learning. This independent learning is directed, with lecturers providing general reading lists to prepare for or follow-up classes, specific assignment reading as well as a range of formative tasks and activities. All this directed study supports and builds upon the knowledge and skills learnt in class to provide a fuller understanding of the subject.
