Cybersecurity analysis focuses on the policy dimension of cybersecurity. It identifies the information vulnerabilities of an organisation (for example, a government department, a business or a non-government organisation) and then provides strategies to counter and mitigate the potential cyberthreats to these vulnerabilities. The Australian government has determined that cybersecurity analysis is an area of strategic priority for the nation. Graduates with expert knowledge of cybersecurity analysis are now in high demand across a range of sectors.
The highly practical Master of Cyber Security Analysis – developed in consultation with cybersecurity experts from government and industry – is designed to directly address the cybersecurity skills gap in Australia and overseas by training the next generation of policy and strategic thinkers in cybersecurity.
