Securing cyber success

The most valuable thing about the course is the knowledge and confidence we gain from the hands-on work placements. I was able to meet and learn from subject matter experts who supported, encouraged and inspired me with their career journeys.

Certificate IV in Cyber Security

Already an IT professional, Monika Mathur decided to upskill and reach for her career dreams with a cybersecurity qualification from VU Polytechnic.

“I wanted to make a successful career in cybersecurity and learn the latest technologies to support that. VU has got first-class infrastructure and technology to support this kind of learning, and a great reputation in the space.

Taking the Certificate IV in Cyber Security increased my confidence and offered a solid foundation. Our teachers helped and motivated us while being very knowledgeable.

My placement with VU’s IT Services Cybersecurity team, working in a real world environment, gave me hands-on experience and the chance to meet and learn from subject matter experts who supported, encouraged and inspired me with their career journeys.

I worked on a range of large projects and mini assignments – practical tasks that gave me a deep understanding of professional environments and ways of working.

Since graduating, I have taken up a position as an Information Security Analyst in one of the leading Internet Service Provider organisations.”
