In this unit 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. This unit also introduces learning through practice by exposing you to authentic learning experiences. These experiences are placed at the centre of learning and assessment, so you have the opportunity to develop the skills, knowledge and behaviours necessary to respond to industry, community and/or global needs. You will be introduced to: - a range of methods, tools, techniques and approaches to practice - principles and perspectives such as values, ethics, empathy and leadership in real world scenarios - reflection and deliberative thinking as a means of developing knowledge, skills, attitudes and aspirations - ways of understanding problems and developing solutions through active inquiry.
