The Artificial Intelligence with Cyber Security course at Anglia Ruskin University will give you an in-depth understanding of artificial intelligence concepts, principles and technologies that affect cyber security. The security of business systems and data is vital, and with most business having an online presence you will learn to implement AI to monitor and protect against cyber attacks.


With large scale cyberattacks becoming more common in recent years, artificial intelligence (AI) is key in watching for patterns that could indicate bots or other AI systems, blocking these attempts and keeping systems secured.With an overwhelming majority of security vendors claiming to do some kind of artificial intelligence in their solutions – either to spot malicious behaviour patterns, or to add support to overloaded security operation centres – already AI is changing the methods of how most security vendors approach threat detection, and many would agree that AI in security is still in its infancy.

The Artificial Intelligence with Cyber Security course at Anglia Ruskin University is designed to prepare you in the area of network, information and computer security, focusing on the strategic implementation of AI-enabled security methods. You will learn in a business-focussed context, allowing you to assess new and existing cyber security threats and apply suitable AI techniques to minimise them. Businesses will also have the opportunity to present you with real-life problems through our guest lectures, giving you an understanding of business needs in this area.


Once you have completed this course you will be prepared to undertake roles that require programming for data analysis, a knowledge of machine learning, neural networks and deep learning and also apply these skills specifically to cyber security.

If you'd like to continue your studies in research or further education, Anglia Ruskin offers a wide range of full-time and part-time postgraduate research degrees including MPhil or/and PhD in Computer Science, or even a DProf in Science and Technology.
