Aims and objectives

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, security tools and software. This unit explores how systems and humans combine to become a cybersecurity threat forming the basis of control and standards frameworks. Students also examine a broad range of tools that are used in the infiltration, protection and monitoring of cyber networks
 
Students who successfully complete this unit will be able to:
 
1. Develop and implement strategies relating to network security issues and threat mitigation
2. Integrate different security measures and access controls to provide enhanced levels of security
3. Communicate and disseminate business wide policy in relation to network security with a focus on cybersecurity frameworks
4. Evaluate and recommend appropriate solutions to emerging network security issues
5. Analyse a variety of network auditing and forensic tools used to explore or prevent network security incidents
