A new range of cyber security courses are set to be offered by the global defence firm, in collaboration with a South Australia-based electronic warfare company.
Rome-based defence and aerospace firm Leonardo has announced it will deliver cyber security courses through DEWC’s School of Information Operations (SOIO) at the Australian Cyber Collaboration Centre (A3C) in Adelaide.
Specifically, Leonardo, which has already offered courses through the School of Information Operations since its launch in February 2020, is expected to offer training in cyber and electromagnetic activities (CEMA).
The first of the new courses, designed in partnership with technology skills learning specialists QA, is a three-day entry-level cyber security workshop, which includes an instructor-led online component as well as classroom and demonstration elements at the AC3’s cyber range in Adelaide.
The new offering forms part of Leonardo's broader strategy to expand its global footprint.
The firm also delivers courses through the Leonardo Academy in Lincoln, UK, in which it trains the UK Armed Forces’ Joint Electronic Warfare Operational Support Centre (JEWOSC) as well as international clients.
According to the company, its global offering leverages its experience working with intelligence agencies in the UK, Italy and other NATO-member nations.
