Cyber security is always in the spotlight, whether it's a story about data breaches or election hacking. Unfortunately, cybercrime isn't just limited to these areas cyber criminals pose a risk to everyone and every organisation. Governments and businesses, therefore, need qualified staff who have a broad range of skills and experience to tackle increasing levels of cybercrime. There is, however, a significant skills shortage in the cyber security field, meaning experts are in demand both in Australia and globally. This course unique in New South Wales brings together studies in risk, IT, finance, law, governance and policing, providing you with a multidisciplinary skill set that will enable you to lead more effective responses to security challenges. You'll also benefit from our close collaboration with Optus and other major companies in the Optus Macquarie University Cyber Security Hub.
