16 Jan ,2023


The qualification has been created to develop those learners who are looking to choose, or already have chosen, a career in a business-related sector. It is designed to provide a career path for learners who wish to develop their core capabilities within the cyber security sector.

The outcome of the Diploma, which is a recognized UK qualification, is for learners to develop the skills required by organizations globally.

This diploma is about ‘cyber security as a holistic discipline. It examines both ‘cyber’ and ‘security’ domains which relate to IT security. It is therefore in most parts a non-technical qualification that looks at both cyber-technical and cyber-physical security threats, risks, responses and risk treatments. The core aim is to prepare administrators and executives to manage and operate generic, non-technical cyber security activities within a business, third sector or government organization.


Learners studying for the Level 3 Diploma will be expected to develop the following skills during the programme of study:
  • the ability to read and use appropriate literature with a full understanding;
  • the ability to think independently and solve problems
  • applying subject knowledge and understanding to address familiar and unfamiliar problems
  • recognizing the moral and ethical issues of business practice and research; appreciating the need for ethical standards and professional codes of conduct
  • an appreciation of the interdisciplinary nature of business and service provision
  • capacity to give a clear and accurate account of a subject, in a mature way and engage in debate and dialogue both with specialists and non-specialists
  • transferable skills and knowledge which will enable individuals to meet changing environments and risks
  • motivate individuals to progress to further professional development through future study or as part of their chosen career.
