Study cyber security

Data protection is at the heart of cyber security. In today's modern world, nearly all information is stored digitally – everything from a company's customer database to a contact list on your phone is all vulnerable to attack. 

As cyber attacks are becoming increasingly common and more harmful, organisations are looking for ways to protect themselves and mitigate the risks of future attacks. Australia and the wider world are currently experiencing a severe shortage of qualified cyber security professionals, and demand for creative problem solvers is at an all time high across a range of industries including banking and finance, healthcare, law, retail, defence, and government.

With information technology professionals already in high demand, adding a specialisation in cyber security to your skill set will ensure you enter the job market with highly sought-after expertise.
