Study level: Undergraduate
This course aims to provide you with a strong practical and theoretical understanding of cybersecurity, hacking, digital forensics, security operations and the underlying associated computer science.
The course is designed to help you develop skills in the following areas:
- Understanding who ‘hackers’ typically are, the techniques they use to break into systems and the way we defend against them.
- Learning how to examine computers and networks for digital artefacts, and how these can be used in a legal case, or as part of incident response.
- Understanding how the network infrastructure connects systems, and the impact on security.
