People are a critical part of the cyber security equation, and today marks the launch of new training options for individuals looking to train or upskill in cyber security.
We’re proud to support Australia’s first national skills-based cyber security Certificate and Diploma level qualifications to be delivered by TAFEs across the country.
As Australia’s leading telecommunications and technology company, we understand that the internet and connectivity are fundamental to the lives of all Australians and the ongoing prosperity of our economy – and strong cyber security capabilities to protect this connectivity are critical.
These new training options are a welcome step in upskilling professionals and broadening the base of cyber security-skilled individuals, so organisations large and small can harness the potential the internet provides and help organisations manage the business critical risk of cyber security.
We have been a proud contributor to the development of the cyber security Certificate and Diploma-level qualifications offered by TAFE institutions around Australia. We recognise the need to upskill professionals, and equip a larger number of individuals across organisations both large and small with cyber security knowledge.
We’ll also actively recruit graduates from these qualifications into our Cyber Security team, whose mission is to protect the privacy and security of our customer and corporate data and network. We’re always on the lookout for curious people who love security, and these new training options grow the pipeline of skilled and educated cyber security professionals.
The Certificate IV in Cyber Security 22334VIC and Advanced Diploma of Cyber Security 22445VIC courses are practical, non-degree courses. They are available for enrolment at Box Hill Institute (VIC), Canberra Institute of Technology (ACT), TAFE NSW, TAFE QLD, TAFE WA (SMT & NMT), and TAFE SA from 2018.
TasTAFE and Charles Darwin University (NT) are committed to providing cyber security training, and will work closely with industry in their respective jurisdictions to plan implementation of these programs in 2018, in line with other states and territories.
