Accelerated and 100% online, the Graduate Certificate of Cyber Security engages with, and provides a pathway for, information technology professionals seeking to commence or further progress their careers in the cyber security domain. It is also relevant to those seeking to enter the IT profession who have no previous experience in the cyber discipline.
The Graduate Certificate consists of only three core units and can be used as a stepping stone into the Graduate Diploma which requires completion of another three units.
Additionally, both of these courses can provide a pathway into the Master of Cyber Security for those who do not meet the entry requirements of the Master program.
