Enrolments are now open for the 2022 Australian Defence Force (ADF) Cyber Gap Program, which will support students studying a cyber-qualification.
Assistant Minister for Defence, the Hon Andrew Hastie MP, said the ADF Cyber Gap Program, run in partnership with the Digital Transformation Agency, would continue to boost Australia’s sovereign cyber workforce capability.
“Cyber is the new battleground, and the important mission our service men and women undertake in cyberspace will be vital to keeping Australians safe and secure.” Assistant Minister Hastie said.
“The ADF is looking for a diverse group of applicants who are passionate about cyber and interested in a career with Defence,
“The ADF Cyber Gap Program will expose you to the critical mission Defence personnel carry out in cyberspace and I encourage young Australians to take up this exciting career opportunity with the ADF.
“This program plays an important part in building the strong, diverse cyber workforce that is essential to our national security.”
The program is open to Australian citizens who are already enrolled in, or about to commence cyber-related studies.
Applications for the program are open from 1 September to 31 October 2021 and can be made online on the Digital Transformation Agency website
