Malicious cyber security activity is continually on the rise not just in Australia but around the globe, with cyber security breaches becoming a central problem for leading businesses and organisations. This has led to a dramatic increase in demand for qualified cyber security experts, yet these qualified professionals are in limited supply.

Graduates will specialise in areas including security risk assessments; identity management; implementing laws and codes of practice; evaluating and implementing security protection devices and software; managing a cyber security environment; assessing and securing cloud services; and performing digital forensic investigations on workstations and mobile devices.
