What is Security?

Security is all about keeping people, property, and resources safe against all types of threats. This can include watching over physical structures, controlling access to events, safeguarding digital networks through to protecting entire populations against domestic and international terrorism.

Roles in the security industry can include any the following:

  • Security Officer
  • ICT Security
  • Security Analyst
  • Security System Technician
  • Armed Guard
  • Security Investigator
  • Border Control Agent
  • Risk Management Expert

Security in Australia

Australia’s security industry has grown dramatically in recent years and now includes tens of thousands of professionals. Most jobs are in New South Wales (32.5%), Victoria (24%) and Queensland (18.8%), and can involve working for anyone from small businesses and large corporations to government departments.

The average working week is 42 hours long, many roles involve evening and weekend work, and rate of pay varies considerably; for example, the average salary for security guards is $50,000 while ICT Security professionals earn around $77,280.

Security Courses

When you’re working in security, you’ll have people relying on you during every single shift; therefore, having the latest skills, knowledge and training is essential.


Certificates provide a fast and easy way to learn the basics and can be completed in as little as 6-12 months. Whether you want to get trained up in network security, take a security license course, or start on the path towards a career as a security advisor, these nationally recognised programs will have you on the right track.


Security courses at the diploma level closely examine the theory and practice behind modern-day security, while providing the opportunity to learn more about specialised roles. These popular programs offer a natural pathway into roles ranging from security guard to network security analyst and are a great way for security professionals to expand upon their skills, knowledge and perspective.

Bachelor Degree

If you’d like to advance into specialised security roles – either working for private companies or government departments – investing in a graduate diploma or a bachelor degree is a smart move. These in-depth courses cover all aspects of modern security theory and practice, from identifying and monitoring imminent threats to planning and implementing effective security strategies.

Studying at TAFE comes with plenty of advantages, such as the high level of support available, the world-class instruction you’ll get, as well as the option of studying either in-class or online security courses. Best of all, no matter what you study your qualifications will be respected right across the country.

Career Prospects in Security

The world has become a far more dangerous place over the last few decades, with the range of potential threats now spanning everything from personal assaults to identity theft through to international terrorism. As a result, the security industry worldwide has grown considerably in recent years, particularly here in Australia.

Is a Career in Security Right for You?

To thrive in the security industry, you need to be willing to go the extra mile to ensure a job well done, because regardless of the role you play, you’ll need to stay one step ahead of those many threats that you are safeguarding against.

If the following qualities sound like you, you will do well in security;

  • Calm under pressure
