Programme content

Over six modules, the programme explores cyber security from the basics of cyber hygiene to advanced and adjacent topics.

Module 1 - Core Cyber Security Concepts Gain an ability to evaluate and understand cyber security context within the needs of a business.

Module 2 - Threats and Vulnerabilities Deepen your understanding of the threats to your organisation -- from insiders, hackers and cyber criminal organisations to nation states. Learn how to use threat intelligence to analyse cyber risks, and a leading framework to better prepare your organisation.

Module 3 - Globalisation and Supply Chain Cyber Security Confront the cyber risks of globalisation and integrated supply chains through deep exploration of emerging challenges of AI and quantum computing.

Module 4 - Cyber Security Controls and Operations Build skills to implement and strengthen cyber operations and architectures. Learn about incident response and practice responding to a major attack in a simulation. Explore the cyber maturity model and gain an understanding of what you need to do to take your organisation to the next level.

Module 5 - Responsible Innovation and Digital Opportunity Explore the ethical dimensions of the new cyber world, and how to innovate responsibly for the benefit of all. Exercise persuasive skills to position your cyber venture for positive future impact and confront cyber issues with complex technical and social implications.

Module 6 - Resilience and Strategic Responses Develop the skills to take smart risks and to make your organisations more resilient against ever-evolving cyber threats. Explore the cyber implications of corporate M/A and rapid growth, and complete an experiential learning team capstone project.
