About Master of Cyber Security, Master Degree - at UNSW Sydney Online

Cybercrime is on the rise, with Australians reporting cyber security incidents every 10 minutes, and costing businesses $29 billion each year.

The industry is expected to almost triple in size by 2026 and requires an estimated 16,600 additional professionals in both technical and non-technical cyber security positions.

The Cyber Security program is designed for ambitious professionals who want to become technical experts or leaders and leverage lucrative career opportunities within the field of cyber.
