Course Overview

The Level 5 Diploma in Cyber Security programme provides a career path for learners who wish to develop their core capabilities within the cyber security and risk management sector. This Level 5 qualification is potentially unique because it is about ‘cyber security’ as a workplace management discipline. It is therefore a semi technical qualification that examines technical cyber security measures as well as the management, project management and leadership skills required to organize internal and external business responses to major incidents. The programme utilizes many case studies from business organisations and embeds isomorphic learning into its technical education.
