This course produces graduates with the capability to design, implement and evaluate identification systems, data capture systems and communications networks and their associated security protocols within a business environment. Expect to graduate with a clear understanding of data communications and associated security techniques that should be used within a network environment.

Many of the issues concerning security relate to systems and devices in which failures in protection can endanger human life, the safety and viability of industrial and commercial systems, the safety of the environment, undermine public confidence and fuel criminal activity. Combating fraud and malice, together with the requirements for handling errors and mischance, are core objectives in the development of secure network and communication systems.
