What is Cyber and Computer Security BSc (Hons)?

Work on live business cases to defend against cyber security risks. You’ll study the cyber environments of banks, high-security digital environments, ecommerce and social media platforms, graduating well-equipped to protect cyber environments across business sectors. Our Cyber and Computing Security degree focuses on protecting against cybercrime before it happens. You’ll develop specialisms through module choices to match your career goals. Optional subjects include data analytics, information security and digital crime scene investigation. You’ll also examine ‘hot’ cybercrime topics. These include the latest security crimes in the news, as well as big data and Cloud systems which have both significantly increased commercial security risks. You’ll learn to identify security breaches and implement solutions using the latest industry tools and techniques. Through hands-on experience of analysing secure networks and websites, you’ll develop skills around penetration testing, malware identification and ethical hacking. From network design (the physical securing of network components) and operating systems security with a focus on Windows, MAC OS and Linux, to information security (keeping cyber information secure in a business environment), you’ll graduate well prepared for your next step.
