Develop professional skills to respond to and prevent cyberattacks and crimes
Cyber security is rapidly evolving, and professionals must keep up-to-date with the complexities of different cyber threats, as well as the different technologies under attack.
On this microcredential, you’ll learn how cyber security professionals respond to an imminent, active or recent cyber threat. You’ll explore how to go about resolving attacks and how to complete legal investigations of any potential cybercrime.
You’ll develop skills in this exciting area using up-to-date experience from the internationally recognised Cisco CCNA Cyber Security operations certification.
Worldwide spending on cyber security is forecasted to reach £102.5 billion in 2022 and projected employment for IT security analysts is predicted to grow 32% between 2018 and 2028.
Apply the skills learned in this microcredential to start your journey as a cyber security analyst, consultant, architect or engineer.
This microcredential is designed for professionals looking to enter the growing cyber security industry, as well as those with a background in the area who are looking to upskill.
Professionals who would benefit most from the microcredential include those working in network engineering, systems support, and IT.
Completing this microcredential will not require you to be Cisco focussed as the concepts and practices covered can be applied in many alternate professional and technical contexts.
This microcredential is for anyone who wants to master the many skills required for a career in cyber security, but it’s recommended that you have a good general understanding of computer technology and a technical experience from a computing, IT or industry qualification.
However, all required skills and foundational knowledge are covered within this microcredential.
Please note it is essential that you are able to access a device capable of running a virtual machine.
All teaching is in English, and your proficiency in the language needs to be adequate for postgraduate study.
