Hands-on cyber security training
A recent Government report* estimated Australia would need almost 17,000 Cyber Security specialists over the next decade.
The Cyber SOC offers options for long-term unemployed, disengaged youth, career changers and the general public. It features a wide range of training and professional development programs related to cyber security. This ensures students get the skills, knowledge and credentials they need to meet emerging industry need for cyber-savvy employees.
Cyber security is an ongoing life skill to be practised in all environments, not just at work or in study.
