Increasingly, government and corporate organisations need to identify information security risks and interdependencies between business functions. Escalating security threats to organisations' information assets and increasing needs for organisations to comply with the governance of information management have resulted in organisations requiring well-trained ICT professionals capable of addressing three key issues: managing information; protecting information; and forensic investigation of information security incidents.

Graduates of the Bachelor of IT in Cybersecurity and Forensics will be well suited to meet these important industry demands.
