The Australian Government's Cyber Security Strategy states that Australia, along with many other nations is facing a skills shortage in the field of cyber security and these skills are essential in our connected technology-enabled world. Current predictions estimate that we will see a worldwide deficit of 1.5 million information security professionals by 2020 while employment prospects for cyber security and related jobs in Australia will grow by 21% over the next 5 years according to Labour Market employment projections.

Both state and federal governments have made a commitment to ensure Australians have the opportunity to equip themselves with cyber security skills and North Metropolitan TAFE is a premier Cyber Security training provider at the paraprofessional level.
