GCSE Cyber Security

Cyber security is the branch of Computer Science that deals with online threats and how to keep data secure. As more devices are connected via the internet it is increasingly important to understand cyber security.

With the advent of the data age it more important than ever that the data we receive and create is kept secure, both from accidental leakage and corruption, and from malicious users who may target the user in order to gain access to that data.

These resources look at how encryption techniques work, how to avoid data corruption, new and upcoming methods for identifying the user to the computer, and more generic issues around ways to keep computer access secure. This topic also covers the legal issues around computer use.
