About the Apprenticeship

We need to keep one step ahead of ever growing cyber threats and our world class technology security team leads the way with just that. We have a strong, international team of security professionals, ethical hackers, cyber-defence experts and architects working hard to maintain our existing services and designing security into new products as they come off the drawing board. To keep up to date with new threats and new technologies, we also need new minds to expand our expertise into the future.

 

With a combination of digital and classroom-based learning, you’ll take modules in Algorithm and program design, defense programming, security management systems, Quantitative & qualitative risk management and more. You’ll gain hands-on experience working alongside industry leaders who’ll share their knowledge with you. And you’ll develop into a Cyber expert who can analyse, model, assess and manage cyber security risks; design, develop, and operate secure solutions; and detect and respond to cyber threats. 

 

At the end of the four years, you’ll have a BSC (Hons) Cyber Security Technical Professional Degree.
