As computers become increasingly interconnected and support more services than ever, system security becomes more challenging and more crucial.
By studying cyber security, you'll learn the fundamental processes and practices to protect computing systems from attacks, damage or unauthorised access.
You'll study secure programming techniques and ethical hacking to safeguard individuals, businesses and governments against cybercrime — and you'll graduate with highly valued and employable skills.
Career paths can lead to roles such as cyber security analyst, cyber systems engineer or information security officer.
