Is Your Student the Future of Australian Cyber Security?

As technology advances and our world faces new challenges, Australia’s intelligence and cyber capabilities are increasingly important – and jobs in cyber security and tech are crucial to ensuring the safety and wellbeing of all Australians.

The Year13 Team recently asked their audience some questions about careers in cyber security and signals intelligence, as well as the Australian Signals Directorate (ASD), who work in the foreign signals intelligence and cyber security space.

87% of respondents said they had never heard of the Australian Signals Directorate and 91% said they don’t know what the ASD do to protect Australians. However, 35% of people we asked said they would be interested in a career in cyber security or signals intelligence.

Additionally, 44% of people said that unique, challenging and rewarding work is the most important thing when choosing a career, more than a competitive salary (24%), broad career paths (11%) and getting real-world experience (21%). Working at ASD ticks all those boxes.

A career at ASD provides exciting opportunities in:

  • foreign signals intelligence
  • cyber security
  • offensive cyber operations

Applications are open and close 7 April 2024.
