The main aim of the module is to provide knowledge and strategic practice in how cybersecurity impacts and is managed in an organisational context. You will examine the historical and modern rise of cyber threats, and the foundational issues of information risk changes in social, organisational and governmental framework works.
Through case studies and practising cybersecurity industry experts, we will identify current technical issues from a business and technology architecture perspective. We will also look at cybersecurity and attacks from the regulatory, industrial, criminal, political, and hackers' perspectives, as well as exploring current methods and motivations of cyber attacks in order to look at the levels of risk, organisational culture and operational readiness in the impact on personal, operational and organisational performance.
You will also learn about current and future technical, social, legal and political developments in cybersecurity ( including narrative engineering, psychological profiling, ethical hacking, quantum cryptography, artificial intelligence, and Internet of Things architectures) and how these developments impact on skills, products, services and operational processes, and the supply chain and markets.
