In this subject you will learn how to interpret and analyse cyber security data. You will use methodologies and reporting techniques which are useful for strengthening information and network security and proposing changes. Specifically, you will learn about cyber security data; the techniques for identifying different vulnerabilities; and how data-driven decision-making techniques can be used to inform and report on purpose driven countermeasures. A key aspect of the subject is developing a practical report using cyber-security data in an organisational context. This subject builds on concepts of learning through practice in Year 1 of study by introducing you to more complex learning experiences. You will be introduced to: - discipline-based skills and knowledge in dynamic practice situations. This will include authentic and purposeful, industry-related experiences - concepts of managing effective relationships and communicating with others - the development and use of adaptive leadership skills and how these skills relate to innovative and entrepreneurial practice - the nature of responsible, accountable and reflective workplace skills, and creative and critical thinking relevant to para-professional practice. You will exercise self-awareness, initiative and judgement to manage yourself and professional relationships effectively. The application of tacit knowledge and capabilities will be reflected in a Practice Manual.
