CyberCX cyber professional

Life changing work in cyber security is waiting for you.

Malicious cyber activity is a threat to New Zealand businesses and individuals. While technology is part of the solution – the most critical need is for skilled and motivated people to help secure our communities.

That’s why we created the CyberCX Academy. 

The program is open to university and Polytechnic graduates, school leavers and people seeking a career change or looking to re-enter the workforce.

Who are we looking for?

People as diverse as the community we serve.

If you’re new to this world, we’ll teach you everything you need to know on the go.

If you have recently graduated with qualifications in cyber security, network engineering or computer science, you might be a great fit. We’re also interested in people from law, arts or commerce that have a keen interest in the field.

But you don’t need to have a degree or have just graduated. If you skipped higher education or have experience in the corporate world and you’re looking for a change, we’d love to hear from you.
