​Network security

​Advancements in computer systems and networks have led to an increase in theft and damage of computer data. Hacking is the attempt to break computer security and make unauthorised access to a system.  The motive behind hackers is to steal money or data or harm a person or organisation due to a personal grievance.
Few hacking takes place for ethical reasons; to identify the security weaknesses that can be later fixed. Hacking is illegal and punishable by law.

This ​A Level Computer Science module introduces ​​network ​security to your students, explaining:

  • ​What are the different threats to a computer or network?
  • How can you identify the vulnerabilities of your network?
  • How can you prevent threats and vulnerabilities to your network?
