In a national first, Canberra Institute of Technology (CIT) has launched a $1.1m Training Security Operations Centre (TSOC) for cyber security skills training.
The project includes a virtual classroom with a cloud-based security operations centre simulating real cyber threats, giving students the chance to work through real scenarios to gain nationally-accredited qualifications.
Tony Marceddo of Vault Cloud and Co-Chair of AustCyber ACT Node Advisory Board said, "CIT is leading the way with implementing education and training pathways to help address the critical issue of growing and upskilling our cyber security workforce."
