NSW Cyber Academy - Intro
The Cyber Academy launches in 2023.
Offering exciting, inclusive and supportive earn-as-you-learn diploma and degree course, the Cyber Academy will help you to discover your place in Australia’s cyber future. The cyber security sector is an exciting and expanding part of our public and private lives. However, due to the rapid rise in cyber threats, there is a shortage of skilled people to protect Australia against cybercriminals.
A cyber career could be in emerging technology, digital forensics (supporting cybercrime investigations), threat intelligence, incident response, or even a more non-technical role working with organisations to build cyber resilience. Most importantly, you will need an interest in a cyber career and a willingness to learn.
We’ll teach you all the tech skills (scripting, coding, cryptography, cloud, programming, security architecture) and life skills (communication, teamwork, integrity, problem-solving, planning and organisation, presenting, and networking) needed to succeed in this exciting sector.
We know balancing work and study can be challenging, which is why we’ll make sure you have the right support and mentorship to manage your time and workload. By the end of the program, you’ll have gained the in-demand skills and knowledge needed to secure full time employment in this exciting industry.
So start your cyber adventure now with the Cyber Academy.
