Cyber Security Analyst

Program Overview

Studies suggest a huge shortage in Cyber Security Analysts and a constant increase in demand for this profession. According to Deloitte, “A massive and growing talent shortfall is one of the most critical challenges facing the cyber security world today. In fact, nowhere in IT is the talent shortage more pronounced than in the cyber arena.

Cyber attacks are on the rise everywhere you look, making cyber security one of the hottest professions in technology. The highly lucrative role of a Cyber Security Analyst puts up a fight against hackers looking to penetrate an organization’s network for malicious purposes.

Serve as the Forefront of Defense

Learn to identify attacks at their earliest stages and prevent significant damage to the organization’s network. You will develop knowledge of cyber security tools, emerging threats, typical vulnerabilities, and hacking patterns.

Learn from Industry Experts

Equip yourself to succeed in a rapidly expanding field with help from our network of cyber experts, instructors, hiring partners, and alumni. The curriculum was developed in collaboration with the industry’s leading companies to ensure you’ll be job-ready.

Deliver a Professional Project

We believe that the best learning is done through hands-on work. Accordingly, the entire program is run as an ongoing lab during which students are required to install attack and defense environments, set up and build cyber security tools, and experience scenarios simulating real-world events.

As the program covers diverse multidisciplinary knowledge and skills, the program’s final BIT (Bring It Together) Project will be devoted to conducting an integrative lab scenario that will require students to demonstrate knowledge, skills, and capabilities from all of the disciplines they have learned. At the conclusion of the course, students will be able to enter the workforce knowing they have real, hands-on experience.

Our mission is to empower people of all skill levels to accelerate their careers in technology through high-quality training.

I've been a tradie most of my life and decided I wanted a change. I saw an ad for CTIA and their Cyber Security course and figured why not. I really enjoyed the content and learnt a lot. After some help from their career advisor, I'm now working for a small business taking care of their cyber security and really enjoying it.

Sam F Former Student

I previously worked in an administrative role for my company, but I love numbers and really wanted to find a job I was passionate about. I didn’t want to leave my current employer because they really look after us, and then we found out about the government funding. They put me through CTIA’s Data Analyst course and now I’m in a job I love AND I got to stay with my company.

Michael S Data Analyst

I’ve always been a creative person but being a mum, I had to make sure my kids came first so wasn’t in a job I really enjoyed. Now they’ve grown up, I decided it was time to find my passion. A friend told me about CTIA and their Full Stack Developer course and I’m absolutely loving it! I can’t wait to finish and finally find a job I love!
