I recently qualified from CIT with a PgDip in Information Security with first class honors and wanted to share my experience of the course so others can also benefit from developing some skills that are very relevant in today’s marketplace.
I enrolled in the course as i wanted to gain some experience and exposure to information security as it is such a hot topic these days. I also wanted to get that formal qualification as opposed to just doing lots of online courses.
Here is a link to the course
CIT offered the course part time and online which enabled people from all over Europe to participate. All the lectures were recorded so you can listen and watch them in your own time if you missed the live lectures.
I gained invaluable knowledge in areas like :
- Cloud Security
- Offensive security
The course also gives you the option of completing the two years and getting an Msc or else exiting the course after 18 months like i did and obtaining a PgDip , the only difference is that the Msc contains a final year thesis / project whereas the PgDip doesnt, but its also possible to return at a later date and complete the project to upgrade your PgDip to an Msc.
All in all , it was an excellent course and im glad i pursued it. The standard of lecturing was very high and i strongly recommend anyone interested in developing some security skills to check it out.
