3559 - Postgraduate Diploma in IT Security Management
Globally, organizations and businesses are increasingly reliant on information technology. Key enterprise data and customer information are stored and shared, communications are made, and transactions between customers, banks, and partners are completed.
Because of the volume and importance of enterprise data that is stored and shared electronically, the defence against ever-evolving cybercrimes has become extremely costly in both the private and public sectors.
It’s estimated by the New Zealand National Cyber Security Centre that cyber-attacks on New Zealand computers and networks have more than doubled in five years. The global cost of cyber-crime has been put at $600 billion a year.
Organisations now seek skilled professionals who have both technical and managerial skill-sets and who can lead teams of technologists to develop and implement security policies and procedures in the defence against cyber threats and can also monitor and audit enterprise information systems.
There is an immediate need in the economy for IT security management professionals. IT Security Specialist is listed on both the Skilled Occupations and Long term skills shortage list by Immigration New Zealand(external link).
The NMIT Post-Graduate Diploma in IT Security Management has been developed by staff with experience in international IT security and digital forensics programmes. It’s aimed at undergraduates seeking a pathway into IT work or people already working in the IT sector looking for a move into managerial roles.
