With an in-depth focus on penetration testing and the implementation of defensive measures, this Computer Security program at Leeds Beckett University will enhance your existing computing knowledge and develop your security expertise. We will teach you how to break systems in order to tighten their security and stop others from breaking into them, and you will develop new methods to protect a company's security.
You will gain hands-on experience in a Virtual Learning Environment. Connecting to a remote machine from your PC or laptop, you will discover how to 'hack' and defend machines in order to test their security using safe and legal training procedures.
This is a course that can be studied from the comfort of your own home. It is taught entirely online, providing you with practical scenarios in which you can role-play as an IT security professional.
Whether you are already in computing and looking to move into security or you are a student who has just finished a computing-related degree, this course will give you the skills to protect the information held by businesses across every sector, giving your career global potential. Your future roles could include penetration tester (system, network, web, and application), security architect, malware analyst, security analyst or security auditor.
