COURSE DESCRIPTION

Cyber security engineers are in high demand all over the world as organisations continue moving towards online operations. As organisations are digitalising their applications and data to the cloud, cyber security risks and threats increase. Organisations are required to be constantly vigilant and prepared to thwart attacks and must have contingency and disaster recovery plans in place to protect IP and data.
With our hands-on ICT50220 Diploma of Information Technology (Cyber Security), you will get essential skills and knowledge to design, build and test network servers, apply IP, ethics and privacy policies in ICT environments, identify, confirm and respond to cyber security incidents, manage network security, designing systems to prepare for and respond to cyber security threats, lead and facilitate a team, manage ICT infrastructure projects, and develop, implement and evaluate incident response and disaster recovery plans.

From the course, you’ll learn several important cybersecurity skills, such as how to:
• Perform cyber security risk assessments
• Promote best practices in cybersecurity
• Identify and protect critical infrastructure for organisations
• Manage network security
• Gather, analyse and interpret cyber-security threat data
• Design, build and test network servers and security architecture
• Develop and implement incident response plans
• Review and update disaster recovery and contingency plans

Other personal skills you may learn along the way include:
• Strengthening problem-solving skills
• Leading a team in an IT environment
• Analytical thinking skills
• Developing critical thinking skills
• Leading and managing a team
• Managing client problems

Every student will need to demonstrate:
o Completion of Australian Year 12 or equivalent
o Attaining IELTS 5.5 English language equivalence if a non-native English speaker
