Course Overview

It’s no longer sufficient to rely on IT teams to solve the challenges of cyber security in organisations.

As the first, second or third line of defence, individuals in business today need the skills and tools to manage cyber risk and maintain a defensive mindset when it comes to cybercrime. Using real-world examples and the very best tools in experiential learning, Getting Cybersmart delves into the cyber threat landscape highlighting the potential dangers threatening business today, providing methods and frameworks to create and foster an ethical cyber security culture.


It was useful, informative, applicable to my career and a really refreshing learning experience that I looked forward to using in my working day.

The course has exceeded my expectations, I have gained a whole new level of understanding and appreciation not just around the JORC Code but the influence this has on the mining industry, but also the ASX.

Access to best in the field experts, the professional structure of the course and the quality of the materials mean that it is a worthy investment for our technical professionals.
