Our world is increasingly shaped by cyberspace, a vast network of digital devices which store, modify and transfer information. Its influence continues to grow, as does the associated security risk. This course, which includes a GCHQ Provisionally Certified Pathway will deepen your cyberspace knowledge, so you’ll understand a vertical slice through an enterprise. You’ll also be capable of both tightening an organisation’s digital security and managing those who interact with digital devices.
You’ll take core modules in Cryptosystems, Security Architectures, Digital Forensics, Industrial Espionage and Information Risk Management. You then have the option of four further modules — you can choose to develop your managerial skills, or opt for more of a digital focus. Many of our modules feature real-world teaching input from major national and international organisations. That means you’ll learn from the likes of IBM, PwC, Nettitute, Dstl, and UK law enforcement and government agencies. You’ll gain a complete appreciation of digital technology within enterprise — from reconfiguring firewalls during cyber-attacks to
persuading the board to take new risks.
The course will leave you in an excellent position for a fast-advancing career in a rapidly growing industry. Our graduates work in a number of commercial, industrial and public sector roles at strategic and operational levels, carrying increasing responsibility for cyber security across the globe.

“A number of people I spoke to in India recommended WMG and of course, the University’s ranking speaks for itself. The programme itself looked very interesting, particularly the way it focuses not just on technology, but how it fits within the broader global business context.”
