About the course
What can I expect out of this qualification?
The purpose of this qualification is to equip people with the skills needed for technical and/or management professionals in IT related positions in cyber security. Cyber security roles are occupations identified on the New Zealand Long Term Skill Shortage List (LTSSL), suggesting sustained shortages of skilled workers and ongoing demand for graduates skilled in these areas.
Cyber security is also a key priority for Government, and the 2015 Cyber Security Strategy and 2018/9 refresh of the strategy signals the government's commitment to ensuring New Zealand is safe, resilient and prosperous online.
Cyber security is critical for New Zealand, and is at the forefront of protecting infrastructure, business and computer networks from attack.
