The Cyber Security Analysis program at Macquarie University is tailored to directly address the cybersecurity skills gap in Australia and overseas by training the next generation of policy and strategic thinkers in cybersecurity. 


Cybersecurity analysis focuses on the policy dimension of cyber security. It identifies the information vulnerabilities of an organisation (for example, a government department, a business or a non-government organisation) and then provides strategies to counter and mitigate the potential cyber threats to these vulnerabilities. 

The Australian government has determined that cybersecurity analysis is an area of strategic priority for the nation. Graduates with expert knowledge of cybersecurity analysis are now in high demand across a range of sectors.

Key features 

  • The Cyber Security Analysis program at Macquarie University will teach you to critically analyse real-world cybersecurity issues and use advanced disciplinary techniques and methods to develop solutions to them.
  • You can take elective units from sociology, accounting and risk management, politics and international relations to increase your knowledge and your employability.
  • Internship opportunities with government and industry partners are available – on a competitive basis – during your studies.
  • Graduate career opportunities are widely available due to the global shortage of skilled cybersecurity professionals.
  • You’ll have opportunities to participate in dynamic simulations and wargames with postgraduate students undertaking security and intelligence degrees. These activities replicate the multidisciplinary groups that tackle security issues in the real world and will improve your practical skills.
