This unit provides the knowledge and skills required to ensure and maintain the security of an organisation’s website by utilizing the outcomes of the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP). Current penetration testing tools are also utilised to determine the vulnerabilities of a web site. Vulnerabilities are assessed and reported to appropriate personnel to minimize risk.

This unit provides base level skills and knowledge to configure an operating system on a personal computer, adding security, setting user level passwords and privileges to limit and identify user access – all required to increase protection of the end point from cyber security attacks. The unit also provides an overview of internet of things (IOT) devices, an introduction to computer networking virtualisation and base level Linux commands – deemed to be invaluable in using cyber security tools.


This unit provides a cyber security practitioner with an introduction to the skills and knowledge required to comprehend how data travels around the internet and the function and operation of protocols such as the Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) suite and devices that facilitate this data transfer. The exposure to these protocols is at an introductory level in this unit.
