Information security is increasingly important nowadays. Under the current covid-19 pandemic, we go online in many aspects of our lives. Therefore the awareness for information security has risen.

In this programme, I learned to integrate different domains of information security such as audits, network security, and forensics. At the same time, I also learned two types of programming languages for my future studies and work. Apart from the hard knowledge, our lecturers also introduced the operations of the information security industry. For example, I learned when we should obtain an information security certification and the objective of different certifications.

If you wish to enter the information security industry in the future, this course can help you to understand it deeply. If you want to continue to study, it can also help you build a solid foundation in computing knowledge.

When I was in Form 5, I have applied Computer Forensic Technology, one of the Applied Learning Courses offered by HKU SPACE. At that time, I have already built up my interest in Information Security and determined to enter this career field in future. Besides, with the advancement of technology, I believe that Information Security specialists stand as a very important role, while it is a relatively new domain in the IT industry. Foreseeing the potential and the importance of Information Security, I am determined to study this programme.

Information Security is not just about technology, management skills are essential as well. This programme provides common IT courses such as programming and networking. Apart from that, you will learn specialized technical skills through hacking and computer forensics, while learning management skills through auditing and Information Security management. After studying this programme, I have realized Information Security is more than an IT subject because it relates to other subjects and areas.

Even though I could not achieve the local universities entrance requirements after my public exams, HKU SPACE Community College has given me the second chance. The learning environment is comfortable, students are motivated and eager to learn. My sincere thanks go to the lecturers, they are professional, patient, and willing to help and support us. The best part of this programme is being taught by lecturers who are working in this industry. I always feel excited when they share their stories and work experiences.   

More talents are needed in this industry. If you are interested in information security, do not hesitate to apply for this programme. You will gain more than you think and have a taste of the adventures in the world of Information Security. I look forward to seeing you and hope you enjoy the journey.

Along with the advancing of technology, use of IT raises Information Security to an important role, that’s what I noticed about the future potential of this subject and the reason I study in.

This programme contains a wide area of knowledge than IT subject, you will learn professional skills such as hacking (also defense), auditing, forensics management skills and compliance. Networking and  programing  (C  and  shell),  these  courses  same  as  other  IT student will not missing in this programme. It can help you to build abilities on either management or technology.

Back to 10 years ago, I was a student of HD in IT. Despite my major was networking, I had opportunities to learn about Information Security and entered the industry after my bachelor studies. Now I am back to HKU SPACE as a lecturer of the new programme HD in Information Security.

If one is asking me why I come back to teach, there are two reasons behind:

First, when compared with IT, Information security is a relatively new domain for people, corporates, institutions and even the society. Due to the fast advancement of technologies and increasing utilization in various industries, more security breakout and concern can be seen (and foreseen). However, shortage of manpower is a major problem throughout the industry, especially in entry level. So I would like to train more people for the whole industry, like what I have gone through in these years.

Another reason is to convey (correct) awareness of information security to teenagers and even the general public, for the misconceptions I have seen nowadays. From TV episodes, movies or the Internet we can see hackers who possess great abilities to destroy or save the world, and teenagers are being attracted and want to become such a person. But the truth is, this industry is a lot more than hackers and technical skills.

In this programme you will learn professional knowledge and skills necessary to survive in this industry, from compliance, audit, management, to technical skills, forensics and hacking (which is pursued by many). Also, you will hear sharing of stories and experience from our adventures in information security field.

My colleagues and I are here to help you to build interests and abilities, as well as provide guidance for your future studies or careers. Looking forward to seeing you around.
