Course Description

This course is a valuable introduction to the tools and knowledge cyber security experts need to build and protect networks, apps and software. It complements the GCSE computer science curriculum and is ideal for anyone contemplating a college major, a career in network security or software engineering.

As with all of our courses, we don’t just focus on the theory. We let students experience it for themselves and take it further with hands-on learning and a promise to cut through the jargon. Students will learn how to create and analyze small programs for security, encrypt messages and information, decrypt encrypted messages and keep information secure.

Perhaps most importantly, everyone gains a strong sense of responsibility - to act safely, legally and ethically. Integrity is an underpinning principle of everything we teach and something that defines the cyber security profession.
