This Level 5 qualification is potentially unique because it is about ‘cyber security’ as a workplace management discipline. It is therefore a semi-technical qualification that examines technical cyber security measures as well as the management, project management and leadership skills required to organise internal and external business responses to major incidents (or the threat of such).
Due to the huge economic risks to businesses, sectors, as well as global regions, from specific and dynamic forms of threat vectors, this course programme will provide solid business management and leadership education (including disaster management, project management and business continuity management) within the context of the digital tech and cyber security threat environment. The course programme is designed and delivered by a mix of academics from Business Schools and Security Management teaching roles.
Who should study this course?
This course particularly suits students who work for large multinational firms, international organisations or widely distributed governmental bodies and agencies. Often our learners might be employees who are responsible for colleagues’ and customer data located across several time-zones via diverse, international business IT and telecoms networks and environments. This qualification will therefore also incorporate converged security considerations critical for those leading and managing the protection of people, assets and information, as well as those responsible for the confidentiality, integrity and availability of company data processes. Cyber security considerations have now very much converged with physical security requirements. Due to the course’s more advanced technical settings, it is recommended that applicants without any technical experience or understanding of computer networking, network security, programming or security risk management principles, should first complete the Qualifi Level 3 Diploma in Cyber Security Management and Operations, then scale up to the Level 4 Diploma in Cyber Security, before enrolling onto this course programme. Learners seeking to enter a university degree top-up programme will be required to have successfully completed our Cyber Security Diplomas at Levels 4 and 5, and attain the respective 240 learning credits, before their application for a Level 6 Top-Up application with a university can be considered.
