State-of-the-art Training Cyber Security Operations Centre opens

South Metropolitan TAFE’s Murdoch Campus has developed one of the first Training Cyber Security Operation Centre's (TCSOC) in Western Australia, which opened in Semester 1, 2019.

The TCSOC is an integral part of cyber security training for South Metropolitan TAFE students and is specifically designed using specialised equipment in a multi functional training facility. Students can learn in a closed and secure training environment designed to simulate realistic cyber-attacks relating to attack, defence and monitoring. 

It is also available for employers and government agencies to develop and enhance their cyber security capability through industry specialised training.

Leading edge training

South Metropolitan TAFE’s Training Cyber Security Operation Centre provides a multi-campus centre based in Murdoch with ‘nodes’ at Thornlie and Rockingham campuses.

This ensures South Metropolitan TAFE cyber security students at all campuses experience leading edge training and is a step towards addressing the growing industry shortage for cyber security professionals both state-wide and nationally and preparing them for entering the workforce.
