COIT20289 - Cyber Analytics Project

General Information

Unit Synopsis

This unit is a capstone project where you will apply your knowledge on cyber security and data analytics to conduct a detailed investigation into a cyber analytics problem. You will use industry-relevant tools, frameworks and techniques to identify, analyse, design and build a solution to a cyber analytics problem. Depending on your track of study, the project may address a current practical cyber analytics problem in industry, or may involve an in-depth research study.

Assessment Tasks

Assessment Task Weighting
1. Report 80%
2. Presentation 20%

This is a graded unit: your overall grade will be calculated from the marks or grades for each assessment task, based on the relative weightings shown in the table above. You must obtain an overall mark for the unit of at least 50%, or an overall grade of ‘pass’ in order to pass the unit. If any ‘pass/fail’ tasks are shown in the table above they must also be completed successfully (‘pass’ grade). You must also meet any minimum mark requirements specified for a particular assessment task, as detailed in the ‘assessment task’ section (note that in some instances, the minimum mark for a task may be greater than 50%).

Consult the University’s Grades and Results Policy for more details of interim results and final grades
