The following learning outcomes will be assessed:

LO 1. Ability to critically understand the principles of cybersecurity and the procedures to manage these in a organisational settings, taking into account potential security threats, risks and attacks

LO 2. Ability to evaluate the processes, procedures and protocols required to implement secure, reliable and effective systems security and identify suitable metrics to quantify and measure levels of security
