Course content

You can gain a broad education in the area of computer and Internet security, combining both technical and managerial aspects.

Building on a practical foundation comprising the understanding of operating systems, network protocols security and how to develop secured code, you will learn how to critically assess the security risks to IT organisations and how to evaluate the information security solution to mitigate them. In addition, you will gain the research skills necessary to investigate the continually changing issues in computer forensics and security in Cloud infrastructures.

If you're looking to work in computing and technology industries, this is a great fast-track conversion course for graduates from disciplines unrelated to IT and computing.
