About the course
Are you ready to protect the UK’s national systems from malicious attacks? This in-depth technical programme emphasises the application of network security best practices to defend the nation’s systems. We emphasise work-related learning and professional development by linking our course material to professional industry qualifications.
You will gain an introduction to networking as a whole and Linux, the open-source operating system that is industry standard for IT professionals. As you progress, you’ll gain an awareness of hacking and cyber attacks by learning how to attack and defend networks. Learning these skills will allow you to safeguard systems from malware and cybercriminals.
Each technical module is directly linked to industry specific qualifications such as CISCO, CCNA/ Sec, Microsoft MTA, Linux LP1, and more. These can be studied alongside your degree. Please note that there may be an additional certification charge for exams.
