Cyber Security

Cyber security at TAFE SA gives you real world skills in different technologies, processes and practices designed to protect networks, computers, programs and data from cyber attacks, damage and unauthorised access.

One of the most challenging elements of cyber security is the rapid and constant evolving nature of security risks, and the mitigation of them.  Maintaining cybersecurity requires a synchronized strength throughout an information system.

According to Forbes, the global  cybersecurity market reached $75 billion for 2015 and is expected to hit $170  billion in 2020 

Cyber security covers:

  • Application security
  • Information security
  • Network security
  • Disaster recovery / business continuity planning
  • Operational security
  • End-user education
