What You Will Learn

Be at the frontline of cyber security. 

With the issue of cyber security becoming more pertinent than ever, the Diploma in Infocomm Security Management (DISM) prepares you to be an in-demand specialist. Be equipped with the skills to develop IT technology to resist cyberattacks, and resolve home and work security system loopholes.

You will have opportunities to familiarise yourself with high-level, state-of-the-art IT security systems, while learning the best strategies and practices on protecting an organisation’s digital assets. You will learn to direct, manage and operate security operation centres. Modules on ethical hacking, intrusion detection, prevention, and security incident response are also covered in this course.




The Cyber Security Agency, set up by the Prime Minister’s Office, is evidence of the priority placed in building our own talent pool in infocomm security. By joining this course, I hope to one day be a part of this community to help protect the technology-driven world in the face of ever-evolving IT threats.
