Course content

Almost daily we hear about cyber attacks on large organisations, but we rarely hear much about similar attacks on small and medium enterprises. This doesn’t mean that they’re not happening.

In this course, you’ll explore some of the common cyber threats facing small and medium enterprises, what a cyber attack means, and what practical tools and strategies you can put in place to prevent them.

Deakin University has been providing cyber security education since 2007. Our experts are active researchers and engaged in partnerships with leading industry bodies such as Dimension Data Learning Solutions, which ensures we develop our students’ real-world cyber security knowledge and skills.
