Go beyond the firewall

With cybercrime networks constantly evolving, governments and organisations have a pressing need to stay a step ahead. There is high demand globally for cyber security experts to secure digital networks and protect our communities.

What will you do?

Our Graduate Diploma in Cyber Security will equip you to execute and manage cutting-edge cyber security programs in any sphere.

The industry-driven content is delivered over 12 months full-time, with a flexible blend of online and intensive on-campus learning. You will gain:

  • a broad, manager’s perspective on complex cyber security needs and issues
  • high-level technical skills and the ability to apply them in real-world contexts
  • a sound grasp of cyber security policy and governance considerations—social, legal and commercial
  • the ability to critically analyse and evaluate relevant data and technology.

You’ll also undertake specialist courses in both cyber security management and secure software.

 Where could it take you?

You could identify vulnerabilities in social welfare systems. Audit information security procedures for business advisory firms and their clients. Or customise state-of-the-art cyber security software for growing SMEs. The grad dip could also give you advanced standing in our Master of Cyber Security.
