Module overview

This module aims to give an overview of cyber security. The module will equip students with a clear view of the current cyber security landscape considering not only technical measures and defences, but also the other subject areas that apply, including legal, management, crime, risk, social and human factors.

Lectures will be given by staff from the University's Academic Centre of Excellence in Cyber Security with invited expert speakers from industry.

Case studies are used to reinforce the concepts being introduced.
