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

South Metropolitan TAFE (SMTAFE) has developed one of the first Training Cyber Security Operation Centre's (TCSOC) in Western Australia, which is now open and operating.

The TCSOC is an integral part of cyber security training for 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.

The centre provides a multi-campus learning experience based at SMTAFE's Murdoch campus, with ‘nodes’ at Thornlie and Rockingham campuses. This ensures  security students at all campuses experience leading edge training. 

The new centre 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.
