About the Apprenticeship

With advancements in the world of tech, people and businesses need to keep one step ahead of ever-growing cyber threats and our world class technology security team leads the way with just that.

We have a strong, international team of security professionals, ethical hackers, cyber-defence experts and architects working hard to maintain our existing services and designing security into new products as they come off the drawing board.

To keep up to date with new threats and new technologies, we also need new minds like yours to expand our expertise into the future. 

You could join us and make an impact in a number of teams across Cyber:

  • Become a leader in the CDIM team, driving and coordinating our response to cyber security incidents
  • CDTI promotes a thoughtful mind! Identify and respond to threats as well as well as proactively hunt potential cyber risks.
  • Want to test the limits of security infrastructure? Our team of Penetration Testers bring security vulnerabilities to light in virtual and physical environments.
  • Does Cyber Forensics sound interesting to you? Our CERT team conducts investigations into system hardware or software and uncovers the steps leading up to a cyber incident.

With a combination of digital and classroom-based learning, you’ll take modules in Algorithm and program design, defence programming, security management systems, Quantitative & qualitative risk management and more.

You’ll gain hands-on experience working alongside industry leaders who’ll share their knowledge with you. And you’ll develop into a Cyber expert who can analyse, model, assess and manage cyber security risks; design, develop, and operate secure solutions; and detect and respond to cyber threats.
