Intended for both computing postgraduates and practicing IT professionals, the course aims to develop in-house expertise to identify the source of insider threats, and to have them investigated within the law and the rules of their organisation. The Digital Forensics module will be accompanied by new modules in Software Development and Project Management with further modules in Software Engineering and Data Management, going live in November this year.

David Mulvey, a Principal Consultant at CGI who was the External Industrial Adviser to the programme says “The OU have taken considerable care to ensure that this qualification is well targetted to the needs of industry. By taking this qualification students can expect to be able to contribute to their work group at a higher level and significantly increase their value as a member of an IT organisation.”

The deadline for enrolment on the May modules in Digital forensics, Software development and Project management is 17th April 2014. The Final enrolment date for November's modules in Software engineering, Data management + Information security is the 30th September 2014.
