Cyber Security is about appropriate protection and access to digital assets within organisations; Digital Forensics is concerned with identifying and responding to security breaches and reporting them to relevant authorities. Students will gain a holistic experience of technical and professional aspects and specialize in their field after the first year of study. The course is part of DMU’s Cyber Security Centre, which influences the government and corporations in their approach to cyber security. In the first year, students will normally attend around 13–15 hours of timetabled taught sessions each week, split across a variety of lectures, small group activities and practical laboratory work. Assessment is made up of roughly 25 per cent end-of-year examination and 75 per cent coursework in each year. The coursework takes a variety of forms, with frequent laboratory-based phase tests providing early feedback on progress. In the second year, more substantial assignments are set, including a research study. In the final year, assessment is typically by coursework with some specialist optional modules assessed by exams.
