  • The fields that a Cyber Security graduate can enter arevast and appeal to many different preferences. Firstly, for graduates that prefer looking at the big picture, then the roles of Security Architect or Vulnerability Assessor are most suitable. These professions focus providing solutions of protecting the most vulnerable aspects of a company’s infrastructure. Secondly, for graduates that enjoy the technical side, then Cryptographer or Security Software Developer would be the most ideal roles. These roles require writing the programs that encode and decode messages. Finally, for graduates that want to test security systems to their limits, then Penetration Tester or Ethical hacker would be best. These professionals are hired by companies to work day and night trying to break and enter systems (legally).
  • Cloud Technologies: 2018 was the year of the cloud as cloud computing exploded in the business world. It is estimated that currently 96% of all organisations use cloud computing in one way or another. Therefore, the demand for cloud computing experts is extremely high as although moving all confidential information to the cloud has benefits financial and logistically, it brings with it higher risk of lost information or theft. Our graduates will be positioned to handle roles such as Software Architect, Cloud Engineer and Network Implementation Specialists.
