The rationale of the Diploma is to provide a career path for learners who wish to develop their core capabilities within the cyber security and risk management sector. The outcome of the Diploma, which is a recognised UK Qualification, is for learners to develop the cyber security skills required by organisations globally. It is also to provide a pathway via learner credits and potential direct entry into related Level 6 Cyber Security and/or Risk Management Degree programmes.
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.
This Level 5 course is especially designed for existing or aspiring organisational executives and leaders who are tasked with responsibility for business resilience, information security, safe technological innovation, safe and secure change management, HR planning and physical risk management, professionals.
The course is flexible and online. It is easily able to be blended. The programme utilises many case studies from business and public-sector organisations and embeds isomorphic learning into its technical and management education. The programme is particularly suited for those who are already in work. Or those who are seeking to develop a structured management competency in information security, risk management and organizational resilience.
