The industry

Recent research conducted by the UK government suggests that the costs of cybercrime to the UK could be in the order of £27 billion per year. To combat this, the Government has invested in a National Cyber Security programme which aims to make the UK one of the most secure places in the world to do business in cyberspace.

The cyber security sector has grown to over £17 billion in the UK, employing over 100,000 people. With the increasing importance for organisations to ensure their computer networks are robust against attempted security breaches, this sector is likely to grow, with high demand for skilled cyber security engineers.

A postgraduate qualification can put you at the forefront of this demand, demonstrating your commitment to the industry and your ability to carry out in-depth computing research.
This is echoed from reports and comments from industry-

“As a small software house, dealing with a group of international corporates, we have a regular need for graduates with strong software engineering and database skills. Given that we design systems that link to e-commerce, a good understanding of cyber security engineering is also key. Over the years we have found the pool of graduates with the required technical skills has seriously diminished so the more technical graduates from Solent University are an important source for us.”
John Noden, Managing Director/Executive Director Technical Design, Zentive

This course combines teaching and research in security and system reliability with human factors, verification and distributed systems. It gives you an integrated view of the technologies relevant to developing trustworthy systems.

You will develop the skills to design and assess computing systems to be secure and safe in the face of failure or attack. You will have the opportunity to assess a real system, such as a cybercrime incident room.

Computer security and resilience are dynamic areas of computing science. Security is not just about cryptography - it's about understanding the flow of information. Resilience is the capacity of a system to recover from damage, whether caused by errors made during software design, by accidental misuse, by human error or by malicious attack. Analysing and designing secure and reliable systems involves taking all these factors into account.

Module Details

You will study four key topics which will collaboratively develop your knowledge and ability to carry out forensic IT investigations as well as an introduction on how to build protected specification software for data and other web applications. You will also get to build your own test system as part of your final project.

Here are the units you will study:

Computer Forensic Investigation and Cryptography: This unit covers the practical aspects of conducting a forensic investigation of digital evidence. In order for the students to develop a critical understanding of computer forensics, a holistic approach of the forensics investigation process is adopted, with a full investigation ‘life cycle’ from seizure of evidence through to giving evidence in court as an expert witness. We look at a range of tools, operating systems and devices.

Computer Security: The unit provides an introduction to computer security concepts and their practical application, in both closed and interconnected networks. Students are expected to both understand and be able to critically evaluate different approaches to securing complex computer systems.

Cybercrime Security and Risk Management: This unit provides opportunities for participants to develop skills and knowledge in the understanding of corporate cyber threats. Drawing upon a range of practical examples, students will examine how rapid technological development and expansion in access to the internet has impacted upon crime (e.g. how anonymity and unfounded trust encourage deception), mapping out the terrain of information technology, and identifying the emerging areas of cyber crime. Areas explored will include the crossing of established boundaries into spaces over which control has already been established such as cyber-intrusion and cyber-theft, but also 'new cyber crimes' in the form of virtual trespass, Denial of Service attacks, and the development of opportunities for offending in the context of social networking websites.

Master's Project: You will undertake either an engineering unit or a study project, during the summer period. The project offers students the opportunity to apply the taught material in the solution of a real-world problem directly related to their course. The engineering project usually involves building a piece of software to solve a problem. An example of the sort of thing you might do would be building a tool to address a specific forensics requirement. The study project usually involves undertaking a study of an IT domain relevant to forensics. To prepare for this the project includes a number of preparatory sessions, which contribute to part of your final mark.

Specialist optional units include:

Systems, Security and Data Analysis: The first part of the unit provides an overview of computer organisation, operating systems and network design, with a strong focus on security considerations and aspects relevant to computer and digital forensics. The early part of the unit will provide an introduction to relevant issues in system architecture and file system organisation. Threats to computer systems will be considered. The first half of the unit is concluded with studying in some depth current technologies for securing real computer networks. The second part of the unit deals with the important topic of data analytics.

Advanced Programming Skills for the Web: This unit draws together a number of system development skills, focusing on how they can be applied to the development specifically of web applications. Topics covered include web programming, connecting databases to web applications, software tools, testing and security.

Programme Assessment

You will be taught through a combination of practical exercises, simulations, lectures, guest lectures and formative assessments, and will be expected to use a wide range of on and offline learning tools.

You will encounter a range of assessment styles depending on the content and nature of the unit topic. This can include written assignments, presentations as well as group and individual lab-based assessments. However, the most significant assessment element is the final dissertation, which reports and reflects on your final project.

Student Destinations

On completing this course, you will be equipped to seek employment in the following areas: IT auditing, information security, independent investigation, Computer Emergency Response Teams (CERT) and law enforcement agencies. Some of our previous graduates have been successful in finding employment within high-tech crime units, commercial investigation and national security bodies, while others go on to further research study at PhD level.

This course will also appeal to already practising professionals in related areas such as law enforcement, system administration, corporate security, IS auditing or security analysis and management for the commercial sector.
