About this Event

The Masters in Cybersecurity Teaching Team at RMIT are organising a Cybersecurity Careers Evening for all RMIT students interested in exploring a cybersecurity career. The event is open to undergraduate, postgraduate and research students.

Industry guests working in cybersecurity from a range of industries will be addressing the students, sharing their own career journey and giving insight into what made them successful. Some speakers are RMIT alumni who are using their degrees and knowledge to make an impact in cybersafety. Learn what a typical day in the cybersecurity engineer or consultant’s life looks like and what employers are looking for when they hire in this sector.

There will be opportunities to ask questions and network with the invited speakers to the end of the event.
