What you'll learn on the course
Security Systems Installation
Skills and Training
Working with industry based standards and devices you’ll learn the fundamental networking concepts required by skilled IT professionals. You’ll identify the communication model and the protocols associated in each layer while focusing on Local Area Networks and the role of routers and switches.
Operating Systems and Virtualisation
Rather than working with a specific operating system, such as Windows and/or Linux, you’ll work with the generalities of modern operating systems through theory and practice. This means you’ll identify the role of the operating system when dealing with a security breach within the organisation, regardless of the type of environment where the operating system has been deployed.
Traditionally, information security has been poorly understood and rarely integrated into system design. With the growth of high bandwidth internet, eCommerce, eBusiness and Virtual Private Networks, security has become a centre-stage issue. However, organisations and businesses find themselves missing the necessary skills and knowledge, especially of the wider security picture, that is needed to develop effective security strategies.
Gain the support and foundations in the research skills for your Master’s level dissertation. You’ll investigate generic research activities, including project management and dissertation preparation. Your topics could include the consideration of suitable content, planning, and the use of project management software.
Cloud Infrastructure and Services
Gain the knowledge to make informed decisions on technologies, processes, and mechanisms required to build a cloud infrastructure. Cover the design principles involved in building a cloud infrastructure based on the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) definition of cloud computing. You’ll focus on the cloud reference model, which consists of five fundamental layers (physical, virtual, control, orchestration, and service) and three crosslayer functions (business continuity, security, and service management).
Data Science and Big Data Analysis
Here, you’ll gain knowledge and practical experience to participate effectively in big data and other analytics projects. You’ll address the business challenges that leverage big data and gain in-depth knowledge of big data and the practice of data analytics, as well as an introduction to the lifecycle of data analytics.
This module supports students in the preparation and submission of a Master's stage project, dissertation or artefact. The Module provides the opportunity for students to select and explore in-depth, a topic that is of interest and relevant to their course in which they can develop a significant level of expertise.
We’ll asses your knowledge and understanding through a case study in which you’ll design, implement and test the security strategy of an organisation. You’ll also complete in-class tests, written assignments, software projects and presentations.
