Designed in collaboration with our industry partners, La Trobe University’s Master of Cybersecurity (Computer Science) is geared to keep pace with the information security demands of business, government, defence and law enforcement. Students undertake foundation subjects to develop industry-relevant multidisciplinary skills, before embarking on a specialisation in Computer Science. These subjects will cover fundamentals of cybersecurity, core knowledge in communication networks, crisis communication, the mindset and motives of hackers, auditing and risk mitigation, as well as legal and ethical frameworks. The Master of Cybersecurity (Computer Science) provides a pathway for existing information technology professionals seeking to commence or further progress their careers in the cybersecurity domain. It is also relevant to those seeking to enter the IT profession who have no previous experience in cybersecurity.
