Are you looking to advance in one of the fastest growing global sectors?
This one year postgraduate degree (or 18 months with work placement) has been designed in collaboration with experienced industry leaders to provide a comprehensive foundation of core cyber security concepts and a practical view into how organisations of various sizes approach and implement cyber security controls. It aims to bridge the gap between foundational concepts and application of cyber security to current technology trends such as Cloud Computing, Internet of Things, Robotic Process Automation, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning.
Rapid growth in this field has resulted in a skills shortage where organisations are struggling to find talent with the right abilities to tackle the challenges they face; our focus is on enhancing your employability to rise to these challenges.
We also offer the Postgraduate Diploma (PG Dip) Cyber Security and Data Governance and the Postgraduate Certificate (PG Cert) Cyber Security and Data Governance for those who are looking to complete a postgraduate qualification, in less than one year. The PG Dip is designed to be undertaken in two terms (6 months) while the PG Cert can be completed in one term (3 months).
