This program is designed and delivered by Ducere Global Business School in partnership with University of New England. This is not a technical qualification.

This course clearly identifies the various data risks to, and the responsibilities of, every organisation with an online presence. Students will focus explicitly on culture, values and dispositions in order to affect change within organisations in regards to best cyber security practice.
