CERTIFICATE IV IN CYBER SECURITY

DESCRIPTION

This Cyber Security programme will deepen students’ understanding of cyber security topics, by strengthening their IT skills and preparing them to protect organisations from data breaches using a range of tools and procedures to mitigate cyber security threats and to minimise network vulnerabilities and risks. This programme covers fundamental building blocks of the required skill set. Students will understand the threat and vulnerability landscape through threat modeling and risk assessments. Furthermore, the qualification will provide students with the knowledge and skills to enable them to monitor the risk of cyber security attacks and implement appropriate software defenses. The programme will also encapsulate measures relating to the confidentiality, availability and integrity of information that is processed, stored and communicated by electronic or similar means. With the increasing connectivity, and the proliferation of devices connected to the internet (the Internet of Things), this programme will highlight the importance of security as a fundamental driver in the design and delivery of information communication and technology (ICT) products, systems and services.
