Cyber Security (Beta)

Algorithms, Best Practice & Methodologies

Currently in beta, this course explores some basic ideas about cyber security, including the mathematics of RSA encryption and some common hacking techniques. We will advise you on the practicalities of carrying out hacking in a controlled environment at your institution, and use a vulnerable Raspberry Pi to enable you and your students to have-a-go at cracking weak passwords and encryption keys. This course is available for A-Level/BTEC and above.

A-Level & BTEC

For an A-Level or BTEC student, we focus on creating and developing projects with staff guidance. We will support you to support the students, and let their creativity flourish as they play and experiment with cyber security ideas.
