The Genius Armoury

Born from the observation of an apparent overlap between the traits of people with autism and the traits of highly effective cybersecurity analysts, The Genius Armoury was designed to attract and identify a cybersecurity talent pool within the neurodiverse community. People with autism with minimal or no prior cybersecurity knowledge will be introduced to a cybersecurity syllabus that is accessible and understandable. It is geared towards people who may be interested in further learning or commencing a career in cybersecurity and ethical hacking. The course provides a foundation syllabus that is intended to spark interest in a cybersecurity career, with further learning options with TAFE NSW. Read more >

“…I really feel like I've learnt a lot... was a lot of content but it was presented in a manageable way that I could understand. Thanks for putting together a great course!”
