Level 3 (Technical) Certificate/Extended Certificate/Diploma in Digital Technologies (5220-30/31/32)
The aim of this unit is to give an introduction to the principles concerned with the security of Information Technology systems and data. Learners should explore a range of techniques used to enhance security of systems and data. The unit will also explore network infrastructure security, and how security measures can be both physical and logical.
Learners will also explore new and emerging technologies used for cryptography and will have the
opportunity to research cryptographic techniques that are applied in organisations.
In this unit, learners will be able to:
1. apply security concepts
2. determine infrastructure security
3. identify types of cryptography.
