Cyber Security - University of Suffolk

Cyber security has never been more important. Our society is entirely dependent on information technology. Computers dominate our working lives, personal lives, homes, vehicles, schools and hospitals. These are at constant risk of attack by hackers and cyber criminals. Our course provides you with expertise in all aspects of cyber security, covering software, networks, systems, people and organisations. We develop your understanding of the motivations and techniques of attackers, and teach you how to successfully defend against them. Current UK salaries for cyber security jobs are high, and demand for skilled professionals is set to rise. 74% of UK security professionals earn over £47,000 a year, while 39% earn salaries of over £87,000. It is expected that there will be 350,000+ unfilled cyber security roles across the UK and Europe by 2022, and over 1.8 million globally. Whether you want to work in the UK or overseas, a vast range of career opportunities in cyber security will be available to you. We also focus on developing your broader computing skills. You will gain additional competencies in secure programming, secure software development, databases, Big Data technologies and data analytics. By completion of this degree, we prepare you to take the certification exams for (ISC)2’s Certified Secure Software Lifecycle Professional (CSSLP) and Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) qualifications – should you wish.
