Subject Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr B. McHugh

Today’s interconnected world makes everyone more susceptible to cyber-attacks. In this course you will build a computer then connect it securely to a network.
Connecting computers covers:-

  • building your own computer

In this practical hands-on course you will install, configure, upgrade and trouble-shoot PCs and mobile devices.
We will also undertake a field trip to a local PC supplier to learn about their supply chain and service provider best practices.

You will learn what cybersecurity is and its potential impact to you by identifying and understanding the most common security threats, attacks and vulnerabilities such a phishing and spoofing - gaining insights into how businesses protect their operations from attacks.

Explore the latest job trends, and why cybersecurity continues to grow, while developing your critical thinking and problem-solving skills using both real equipment and simulations.
