Cyber resilient businesses are able to continue operating even when they are the target of ongoing threats and sophisticated attacks. In any organisation or country there are a wide range of systems at risk from attack from hostile agents such as financial and medical systems amongst others and with our ever growing reliance on computer systems, wireless internet, smart devices and the Internet of Things, the risks and vulnerabilities are set to grow and grow.
This course aims to provide the latest thinking on cybersecurity risk assessments and assist students in becoming conversant in security concepts and principles as well as providing students with a comprehensive grounding in types of vulnerabilities and attacks.
The course will critically consider the strengths and weaknesses of existing approaches and counter measures for dealing with cybersecurity threats, set out best practice in incident response planning processes and discuss the challenges of building an information security culture along with the importance of end-user training and digital hygiene.
