Overview of the course

Cybersecurity threats are varied and constantly evolving, posing an ongoing challenge for individuals and organisations who need to safeguard their private information and data. As a result, there is a growing need for accomplished managers who are able to plan and implement preventative cybersecurity measures to protect against cyberattacks.

Studying a Graduate Certificate of Cybersecurity Management is an ideal first step towards developing expert knowledge in the field of cybersecurity, from a management perspective. As one of the only Australian courses that focuses on managing cybersecurity in an operational context, graduates will stand out with their sophisticated knowledge of cybersecurity threats combined with effective managerial methodologies.

Graduate Certificate students are also eligible to apply for work experience placements with the Australian Defence Force Cyber Gap Program. In order to apply, you must be currently studying an eligible 12-month program.

For students who wish to study further, the Graduate Certificate can lead into the Master of Cybersecurity Management, a comprehensive qualification that prepares students to provide effective leadership when managing cybersecurity risk through the implementation of far-reaching mitigation strategies.
