Become a cyber General

General management training or experience will prepare you for most business tasks. But overseeing defences against serious cyber-attack requires specialist expertise. This degree will help you understand cyber security issues from a range of professional perspectives. And you’ll learn how to apply that insight with a strategic managerial mindset.

What will you do?

Our Graduate Certificate in Cyber Security (Management) will equip you to plan and manage cutting-edge cyber security strategies and systems in any sphere.

The industry-driven content is delivered over six months full-time, with a flexible blend of online and intensive on-campus learning. You will gain:

  • a strong analytical framework to understand cyber security’s challenges and solutions from a broad, manager’s perspective
  • high-level knowledge of business information systems’ structure and security risks
  • an introductory grasp of cyber security policy and governance considerations—social, legal and commercial
  • the ability to critically analyse and evaluate relevant data and technology.

 Where could it take you?

Demand for these skills is spiking worldwide. You could help oversee or manage initiatives to digitally secure border protection authorities’ surveillance plans. Keep companies safe from industrial espionage. Or ensure online voting systems are tamper-free. The certificate could also give you advanced standing in our cyber security grad dip or masters.
