What is Cyber Security?

It is one of the most talked about enhancements to the tech world in recent years that prioritises creating deliverable software products at speed, but also puts security at the centre of everything you build.

You will hone incredible skills in software development, threat modelling and risk management, test driven development, penetration testing, monitoring and detecting threats, fortifying, mutation detection, scalability, automation, continuous processes, finding and exposing vulnerabilities as well as innovative technologies such as containerisation and microservices.

We want to develop your 'adversarial mindset' so that you are ready to take part in serious offensive security measures when developing application and platform security. One of the cornerstones of this practice is called 'Red Teaming', looking at your code and infrastructure through the eyes of a hacker. This process helps you understand the growing sophistication of attack vectors as they expand into every part of our lives via the Internet of Things.

You will use the most up to date tools in the industry to reduce the risk of someone, or something, introducing defects and flaws at a coding level - you will be creating a 'secure by default' environment.

In short, you're going to have to think like a hacker to understand how the software may be attacked when it becomes available.

Does this sound like something you would love?

Here are the additional skills and tools we'll give you to succeed:

  • Python Programming
  • Secure by Design Development
  • Windows and Linux OS
  • Cyber Security Practices
  • Cloud Services
