Networks for the transportation of information are age old and the current and future integrity of these systems require specialist knowledge and expertise, from the physical constructs to the frameworks that underlie the transport and security protocols.
Management of networks and cybersecurity frameworks are fundamental to the protection of identity and data.
This unit introduces students to the foundations of cryptography, network fundamentals and security tools. Students will learn to understand the concepts of layered security and how security protocols at different layers protect different aspects of systems and networks. This unit explores different cybersecurity threats to the network and how to address them. Students will also examine a broad range of attack vectors that are used in the infiltration of cyber networks.
