Cyber security is now widely recognised as an international priority, with hacking, malicious code, and data theft being just three of the many reasons why it's vital in the design, development and implementation of today’s IT systems. Unlike traditional bachelor degree programme (BSc) in Computer Science, this bachelor degree programme (BSc) in Computer and Information Security delivers a view of security threats and solutions, alongside an essential background in wider IT topics and technology. This is particularly important in light of the national Cyber Security Strategy and the current shortage of related skills in the marketplace.
