This course is delivered by Cranfield University on behalf of Technology School, Defence Academy.
This course is for those who seek to be better prepared to tackle the current and emerging demands of cyberspace. Given the rapidly changing nature of the threat and capability landscape this education will allow graduates to recognise emerging threats and respond effectively and proactively. As the course ties together a broad technical and business base, and is supported by a wide range of public and private sector organisations, the qualification will be noteworthy on the CVs of those wishing to move into strategic and operational positions in defence and businesses enabled by the information revolution. The major difference between this award and the Cyber Defence and Information Assurance is that Cyberspace Operations students cover military cyber planning, Joint Action, C2 Battle and manoeuvre instead of some elements of security engineering and security management.
To develop professionals to support manoeuvre in cyberspace, in contested operations and as part of integrated planning.
