As the use of virtual environments, computer databases and information technology has steadily grown, so too has the threat of cyber-attacks. Government agencies, police forces and defence organisations have all identified a major skills shortage of cyber security practitioners globally; as such this cutting-edge degree addresses this gap in the market and has been developed to meet the requirements of the National Cyber Security Strategy.
As well as giving you a sound technical education, this course will provide you with a comprehensive understanding of the computer security sector. You’ll be taught by experts in their field, each bringing their unique skills and knowledge to this exciting programme of study.
Our cyber security unit is something special. Using state-of-the-art technology across our three labs, we can run up to 50 million PCs using just 50. As the name of our facility suggests, it’s all about security here. From the labs we can see where cyber attacks are happening all over the world, and what attacks are happening and being stopped at BU.
