Module description

The National Cybersecurity Strategy, 2016 and further consultations by DCMS have clearly identified:

  • That cyber-attacks remain a threat to the UK economic well-being and that cybersecurity skills shortage is one of the challenges likely to drive UK security priorities;
  • The need to invest in the ability to detect analyse and defend against cyber-attacks in the government and private sectors.

It is in this context, the new BSc degree in Cybersecurity is being conceived and designed. This Cyber Security module is one of the two core modules designed as part of the qualification. The main references for the module are the Cybersecurity Body of Knowledge (CyBOK) and the (Skills Framework for the Information Age) SFIA skills framework. These frameworks describe the range of competencies expected of Information Security and Information Assurance Professionals in the effective performance of their roles.

The UK National Cyber Security Centre has developed a body of knowledge for cyber security (https://www.cybok.org), which identifies three high-level domains for the field:

  1. systems security;
  2. infrastructure security;
  3. software & platform security.

Together with two cross cutting aspects:

  1. human, organisational & regulatory,
  2. attacks & defences.

The module is organised into five blocks:

  • Block 1: Concepts of Cyber Security
  • Block 2: Systems Security
  • Block 3: Infrastructure, Host and Application Security
  • Block 4: Security operations and Incident Management
  • Block 5: Fundamentals of Digital Forensics Lecturers teaching on this Module are expected to keep up to date with cyber security developments that emerge during the lifetime of the TM256 module.
