Why study Cyber Security?

Cyber Security is one of the fastest growing professions globally, with over 1 million open positions — and counting — due to a lack of skilled, qualified personnel. With the amount of data breaches, malware samples and hackers growing every year, the industry is frantically trying to employ experts who can defend against this new wave of cyber-crime. With estimates of 3.5 million unfilled cyber jobs by 2021, now is the perfect time to be trained or upskilled into a high paying, vitally important position.

Our cyber security course curriculum has been designed in consultation with cyber security professionals to provide students with the tools, techniques, and practices used in industry.

Cyber security by the numbers:

  • 516,380 — the number of Australian small businesses that fell victim to cyber crime in 2017, according to Norton.
  • 25 hours or more — the amount of downtime one in four businesses hit by cyber attacks suffer.
  • $1.9 million — the average cost to a medium sized business if hit by a cyber attack.
  • One — the number of staff members that hackers need to dupe in order to gain access to your business’ data.

Diversity Scholarships

At Coder Academy, we’re passionate about looking for ways we can encourage diversity in the tech workforce, particularly in information security. Women currently hold only 11% of cyber security positions globally, and the stats are similar for many other minority groups.

To combat the lack of diversity in the field of information security, Coder Academy is proud to offer Diversity Scholarships for the upcoming intake of the Cyber Security Bootcamp. The scholarship will cover $5,000 of the total course fee. Scholarship entries will be judged on an application form and video submission, and finalists will be determined following an interview.
