Program Description

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.
