Cyber Security: Time to Change

In a period of accelerated change where security experts predict a 40% increase in cyber-attacks, there has never been a greater need to protect your business and develop your cyber security capability.

Address the cyber security skills your business needs through a fully funded BSc (Hons) Cyber Security or MSc Cyber Security Graduate Apprenticeship Programme at Glasgow Caledonian University starting in September 2020.
Both courses make use of the latest technologies ensuring participants are operationally equipped to tackle a broad range of IT security problems and develop innovative solutions for application in the workplace.

Operational staff in communication networks, security engineering and digital forensics represent one in three of all jobs in the IT Sector. Many businesses need to recruit and upskill employees across these areas. If you are looking to increase the talent pipeline of new and upskilled Cyber Security personnel in your business, GCU’s BSc (Hons) Cyber Security Graduate Apprenticeship is an excellent way to grow operational cyber security capability in-house.

The programme will produce graduate-level operational staff with the knowledge and ability required to work in an increasingly complex industry.

Learners will gain an understanding of the required standards and professional ethics to enable them to consider the business impact of effective cyber security decisions. The course also explores the nature of digital evidence and issues surrounding the law and computer crime.

The programme will equip senior people with the technical knowledge and skills needed to secure organisations against the current threat environment.
On completion of the programme, participants will be able to lead strategically and operationally. They will be able to plan and execute a variety of security strategies, research, analyse and evaluate technical threat intelligence and to reduce cyber security threats and vulnerabilities.
