What You Will Learn

The Diploma in Infocomm Security Management (DISM) will help you to develop IT security technologies that businesses and individuals can use to protect their networks from the risk of cyberattacks.

You will use state-of-the-art security systems to develop strategies and best practices to protect the digital assets of any organisation. You will also learn to direct, manage and operate security operation centres.

Modules on ethical hacking, intrusion detection & prevention and cloud infrastructure, with hands on components will be 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.
