Cyber security is arguably the fastest growing industry and most in-demand career field in Australia today with over 11,000 jobs being created in the next three years. Deakin School of IT and LifeJourney are hosting this information session and workshop to help secondary teachers and schools better understand the field of cyber security, the programs available to help inspire and prepare students and the post-secondary courses and degrees that can take them into the profession.
