Want to add cyber security innovation skills to your CV?

Take part in the Cyber Innovation Challenges - a collaborative, project-based program that gives you practical experience and tailored mentoring to develop solutions to critical problems facing governments, industry and society. 

Now, more than ever, there is an escalating need for organisations to protect their digital and data assets from security threats. 

The Cyber Innovation Challenges provide dynamic opportunities for students to be part of the solution. For 8 to 12 weeks, immerse yourself in a real-world setting to develop and apply technical and entrepreneurial skills in a live industry challenge. 

The approach combines the leading AWS “Working Backwards’ methodology with a client-led approach & feedback loop to solve a current problem for an organisation. 

Why take part in a Cyber Innovation Challenge? 

  • Engage directly with industry 

  • Gain practical experience beyond your classroom

  • Develop and demonstrate your skills in a real-world setting which includes both technical capabilities and entrepreneurial skills (ie. teamwork, critical thinking, curiosity and resourcefulness)

  • Design a business model and technical proof of concept alongside experts from AWS and RMIT 

Want to join the challenge? Register your interest by 31 July 2020.
