Calling on cyber students for the 2021 ADF Cyber Gap Program

Published:

If you're passionate about cyber security and interested in how you can help defend and protect our nation in cyberspace, the 2021 ADF Cyber Gap Program could be for you.

Australian citizens who are already studying or enrolling in a cyber-related qualification can now apply online to be part of the program, which is open to 250 students next year.

Minister for Defence, Senator the Hon Linda Reynolds CSC said the ADF is looking for a diverse group of applicants who are interested in a career with Defence.

"This is an excellent opportunity to find out about the important role cyber operators play in the Defence of the nation," Minister Reynolds said.

"The program will expose participants to a range of areas including incident response, threat emulation, discovery and counter-infiltration, and network vulnerability assessments.

"Successful applicants will receive generous financial support, work experience in cyber-related roles, cyber mentoring and assistance preparing for related jobs."

To be eligible to apply, students must be studying for the duration of the 12-month program, but can be working towards any eligible qualification at the Certificate III, Certificate IV, Diploma, Advanced Diploma or Graduate Certificate levels.

A list of the cyber qualifications eligible for the ADF Cyber Gap Program is available on the Digital Transformation Agency website.

"While there is no obligation to join the ADF, I'm confident that the important mission our service men and women undertake in cyberspace will be an inspiring career choice," Minister Reynolds said.
