Course Objective

Enterprises are virtually under constant cyber threats today. Significant cyber-attacks and data breaches at these enterprises have made headlines. Many of the attacks that have been uncovered are increasingly more sophisticated and complex.

The threat is exacerbated by the shortage of cyber security experts needed to counter the attacks. The growth opportunities in cyber security coupled with the increasing uncertainties and complexities in the global environment are driving demand for deeper levels of expertise in the cyber security industry.

The Specialist Diploma in Cyber Security course is designed with advanced topics to boost the level of Cyber Security skills of participants. This SkillsFuture Work-Study Programmes (WSP) in Cyber Security is designed as a work-study programme to give fresh polytechnic or Post-National Service (NS) graduates in Infocomm Security or Information Technology field, a head-start in careers related to Cyber Security. This is achieved through institutional-based learning at Singapore Polytechnic (SP) augmented by on-the-job training (OJT) with participating employers in the cyber security industry.
