Bachelor of Cyber Security

Cybercrime is one of the fastest-growing forms of crime. Each day across the globe, cybercriminals exploit the speed, convenience and anonymity of the internet to commit a range of criminal activities, including phishing scams, password cracking and ransomware deployment. But while cybercrime is on the rise, more than three million jobs will go unfilled over the next couple of years because of a lack of skilled graduates in cybersecurity.

The Bachelor of Cyber Security has been developed in consultation with cybersecurity experts from government and industry. You’ll gain the skills needed to harden organisations against cyber threats by building your awareness of the motivations, mindsets, capabilities and skills of cybercriminals; and by developing your expertise in information security and data privacy, offensive security, digital forensics, applied cryptography, secure coding and artificial intelligence.
