The University of New South Wales (UNSW) Canberra Cyber, based in the Australian capital, is a center of excellence in conducting impactful multi-disciplinary research and educating the next generation of Australian leaders and scholars in this important and growing field.
UNSW Canberra Cyber uniquely brings together a dynamic community of experts in the fields of computer science, engineering, mathematics, psychology, business and management, philosophy, human geography, and criminology. We continue to grow as a team across disciplines and with our industry and government partners.
Through fundamental and applied research, training, and education, UNSW Canberra Cyber is working to combat cybersecurity threats to our nation, organizations, and individuals by understanding the intersection of human, business, and technical factors.
Mapping courses to the NICE Framework gave a structure by which we were able to survey existing course content and ensure that it prepares students for the cybersecurity workforce in a clear and detailed way. At times mapping was difficult due the fact that the level of adherence a course has to any NICE Framework components is self-determined and not able to be independently verified, but ultimately alignment provides a level of detail required to describe learning outcomes for our Professional Education courses.
“Implementing the NICE Framework has allowed us to accurately match student expectation with quality academic delivery”
- Nigel Phair, Director, UNSW Canberra Cyber
