Leadership

Master of Cyber Security

Discover why leadership is just as important as strategy.

In an industry like cyber security, rapid change is inevitable. And as we continue to find new ways to defend, adapt to and get ahead of threats, the need for strong and innovative leadership is essential.

By studying the strengths and weakness of different leadership styles, you’ll gain a better understanding of how to implement projects, engage and inspire technical teams, and ultimately, create safer environments.

You'll learn how to:

  • Provide leadership and advocacy to conduct effective cyber security.
  • Investigate, review, and evaluate cyber events and cyber crimes.
