Overview

When based at Aylesbury Campus, you can study flexibly, typically one full day and one evening, to fit in around your job, family or other commitments

Cyber-attacks are amongst the main security issues facing organisations in the information age. Today, all organisations operate with a potential information security risk and will need to implement strategies to protect their IT systems and data. Although society has become increasingly reliant on information technology and internet based services, cyber security skills and capability are not currently increasing at a comparable rate.

As the sector is growing, so will the demand for cyber security professionals who have achieved the requisite standards and certification. This course will provide you with a fundamental understanding of how to protect those organisations, networks, IT systems and individuals against cyber-attacks and cyber threats.

Career opportunities

Graduate cyber security specialists focus on understanding risks to the security of information or data. They analyse where security breaches may occur or have occurred, and repair or strengthen systems against such breaches. Potential job roles include; Security Analyst, Security Engineer or Architect, Security or IT Director or Manager, Systems Administrator, Forensics Investigator or Auditor. You could also choose to be self-employed, setting up an independent information or cyber security company, or consultancy business. It is possible to embark on self-employment as a new graduate, however many graduates gain experience by working for an employer in the sector to embed and develop your knowledge and skills first.

It is important to note that some roles may also require you to be security cleared.
