Cyber Security Boot Camp*

UNSW Canberra Cyber has been working hard to respond to the rapidly changing COVID-19 situation so that we can continue to deliver our Professional Education Short Courses.

We are focused on providing the best possible student experience in these ever-changing times and are offering our students the opportunity to engage with our courses via live simulcast.  We are aiming to replicate our in-person experience as closely as possible to facilitate your learning.  

You will be supported by a live-lecturer and our team will be available during class time to assist you, where possible.  As a bonus, you will be able to access the labs for a full 180 days so you can reinforce your learning by continuing to engage with the labs at no additional cost.

This is a 101 IT cyber security short course designed to teach you about IT security issues, looking at the types of attacks that are happening now, how they work and how to protect yourself and your organisation against them.

This is an intensive, zero to hero, five day course covering:

  • Overview of Computer Science/IT
  • Networking Fundamentals
  • Open Source Intelligence
  • Cyber Security Knowledge Domains
  • Roles in Industry
  • Cyber Security Threat Modelling using STRIDE methodology
  • Real world case studies
  • Information resources for staying current

The course is centred around the crucial and relevant cyber security skills and techniques needed to protect and defend your organisation’s business assets and information systems. Training is delivered in a boot camp style format and with integrated hands-on lab exercises designed to give you the chance to test your newly acquired skills.
