Certificate in Cybersecurity Operations

The modules, content and delivery have been created in collaboration with HPE to ensure that the required skillset is available to all organisations (cyber specific or not), to proactively and reactively mitigate against cyberattack operations.


The minimum entry requirement is a level 6 (Higher education) major award in a cognate area or equivalent.

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) can be used as a means to gain entry to the programme, or gain exemptions in accordance with Code of Practice No. 6 (Policy and Procedures for the Recognition of Prior Learning). Prior learning can be certified or experiential and will be assessed in accordance with the code.

The aim of the Certificate is to educate IT practitioners in systematically responding to cyberattack incidents. It examines the tools to identify threat actors. Models and frameworks are followed to manage the response. Data analytics can use tools such as machine learning to identify anomalies in organisational IT traffic. Cybersecurity Operations involves implementing secure architecture to defend against vulnerable systems. It can be considered the stage when risk and compliance has failed.
