In a world that is increasingly moving to a digital future and where disrupting technologies and competitors come at a much faster speed than ever before, this course will look at the upcoming technology from Artificial Intelligence to Blockchain.

In addition to choosing the right technology, the course will also consider the increased exposure to Cyber Attacks such as Phishing, Viruses and Hacking that having more reliance on digital technology presents.

Whilst Virus scanners, firewalls and other security measures are necessary, something which is often overlooked in relation to cyber security and digital technology is that of people.
