Network Security is fast becoming the most pressing and least understood problem for many individuals, businesses and nations. The landscape itself is difficult to visualise, built on layer upon layer of evolving computing equipment, networks, protocols and software. The ways in which it can be exploited are innumerable, with new vulnerabilities discovered daily. The BSc Ethical Hacking and Network Security course has been developed to produce graduates who have a good theoretical understanding of Network Security, hacking, digital forensics and the underlying computer science. In addition, through non-trivial technical projects, open-ended tasks and high expectations, we expect our graduates to be capable of the technical work expected of the industry. The course will be taught jointly between Coventry University and NIBM. It will be based at NIBM who is one of the leading computer- training institute in Sri Lanka with a long history, which provides a well-recognised IT qualification and trainings in Sri Lanka. Network Security skills are in high demand by employers. A substantial percentage of our graduates secure rewarding jobs with security companies, large corporations and government organisations. In terms of Sri Lanka, there are many companies that focus on network security that offer employment opportunity to graduates of this course. In additional to large scale international companies in the network security areas there are also smaller companies that were established in Sri Lanka.
