Summary

As cybersecurity threats become increasingly frequent and sophisticated, organisations of all stripes require the expertise to remain secure.

This Melbourne MicroCert provides you with enhanced capabilities in cybersecurity strategy and managing cybersecurity incident response.

Developed with the Academic Centre of Cybersecurity Excellence (ACCSE), Cybersecurity: Strategy and Incident Response is closely aligned with industry standards and led by expert cybersecurity instructors. Drawing on real-world case studies, you will explore various paradigms for protecting organisations from threats, how to integrate them to build a cyber defensive system, and examine the incident response process of detection, containment, eradication and recovery.

The convenient online course is part of the Cybersecurity Management series, which offers you the opportunity to gain credit towards a University of Melbourne degree.
