Course information

This programme goes deep into cyber security, covering everything from understanding core concepts and standards to identifying vulnerabilities and risks within modern networks and infrastructures. You’ll gain the expertise to design secure systems, making them resilient against potential attacks. We’ll also teach you the technical skills needed to become an ethical hacker and proactive security tester, as well as how to perform digital forensics and incident management.


Additionally, you’ll explore cloud, web, and mobile security concepts, becoming adept at recognising critical threats. We emphasise hands-on learning, allowing you to apply essential security techniques to test and protect against real-world attacks and recommend improvements. Our commitment to your success goes beyond the classroom. Arden University offers access to industry-leading resources and certifications, including the CEH Certification in Ethical Hacking through the EC Council, where we’ll cover the resources and cost of the exam.
You’ll also receive Microsoft Security, Compliance, and Identity Fundamentals and Microsoft Azure Security Technologies. We cover the costs of these resources, so you only pay for your exams in many cases, making your degree great value for money.

You can self-study for Cisco courses and receive badges in key areas such as networking, Python and Linux that you can add to your CV.
