Your legal knowledge and practical skills will be developed alongside an applied examination of the strategic deployment and implementation of cyber security within an organisational context.

This programme offers a multi-disciplinary perspective to the subject of Cyber Crime Law giving you an excellent basis for a future career in the field. 

The technical elements of the programme will be underpinned by industry led curriculum including Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) and Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA).

In Year 1, you are introduced to the fundamentals of law including Contract and Tort Law. You will study Information Systems and Organisations and their security.

In Year 2, you explore topics in the latest developments in cyber crime and legal and regulatory frameworks. Modules include Criminal Law, Intellectual Property Law and Technology and Cyber Law as well as optional modules including Company Law, Network Security and Risk Management and Cyber Security.

In Year 3, you develop an appreciation of the legal, ethical and regulatory frameworks together with the human aspects of information security assurance and forensic investigation.

Year 3 (Level 6)

Modules Credits

Intellectual Property Law 15

This single semester module addresses intellectual property - the area of law that governs creativity, innovation, confidentiality, design and aspects of branding. Intellectual property rights (IPRs) are one of the most valuable business assets, but, IPRs can also restrict the public’s access to both key technologies and culture.  This module provides students with the opportunity to develop an understanding of and critical insight into intellectual property law.  

Technology and Cyber Law 15

The law has often been required to adapt to new and emerging technologies. Recently, however, the pace and scale of technological change has far exceeded anything previously encountered. Data and data processing now underpins the global economy. Sophisticated surveillance and analytics pose a substantial threat to any concept of personal privacy, but also promise previously unattainable levels of crime detection and anti-terrorist security. In this module, we examine the response of lawmakers, regulators and the courts to the fundamental legal challenges posed by technology, ranging from ownership of online content to the attribution of liability for harm caused by artificial intelligence and autonomous vehicles.

Penetration Testing 15

This module introduces the skills required and methodology used to perform penetration testing. Penetration testers simulate cyber-attacks to find security weaknesses in networks, operating systems, and applications. Students will acquire hands-on experience using different tools and techniques for penetration testing by working in our specialised lab equipped with tools such as Kali Linux, Wireshark, WebGoat, Nmap and Burp Suite.

In this module, the student will learn how to crack passwords and wireless networks, test web applications for vulnerabilities, use the Metasploit framework to launch exploits and write customised Metasploit modules, automate social-engineering attacks, bypass antivirus software and turn access to one machine into total control of the enterprise in the post exploitation phase.

The module is delivered as a series of seminars and laboratory sessions using industry standard equipment and toolsets. During lectures, the student will be introduced to the different stages of a penetration test and during laboratory sessions the student will reinforce the learning by solving practical labs and exercises that are related to the lecture. The module will be assessed by a combination of coursework and an examination. The coursework will evaluate the ability of the student to transfer its knowledge into a real-life scenario and to critically evaluate a possible solution. The examination test will evaluate the ability of the student to identify and describe the stages of a penetration state.

Information Systems Futures 15

Information Systems Futures evaluates contemporary issues in a rapidly changing information systems environment, as applied to businesses and their stakeholders. The module will focus upon in-depth studies of a number of recent, emerging or potential developments in information systems management – in both theoretical and practice driven terms. In-depth studies involve the evaluation of distinctive digital and online activities, especially as they relate to the creation of new forms of transaction, business models and markets. It will also evaluate the nature, growth and impact of virtual communities and the relationships that form and develop in those communities. The module will investigate a number of topical theoretical issues and practical developments that link technologies to information systems developments.

Dissertation 30
