A recent report from AustCyber has found that Australia needs around 18,000 more cyber security professionals by 2026 if the sector is to be globally competitive.
To help ease the skills shortage, we are offering scholarships for people interested in pursuing a career in Cyber Security.
There are 10 Scholarships available. All Scholarships cover all subjects fees to complete the ITI581 Cyber Security Fundamentals subject via Distance Education with Charles Sturt University in the study session commencing on the 4th of March 2019.
