Bootcamps to focus on challenges posed by regional cyber security

By

Government officials from ASEAN and Pacific countries are to receive practical expert advice and skills training in dealing with cybersecurity challenges at a series of bootcamps to be conducted in Auatralia over the next four years.

The bootcamps form part of Australia’s Cyber Cooperation Program funded by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade will be delivered by the ANU Cyber Institute and ANU National Security College up to three times per year over the next four years.

Organisers say the bootcamps build participants’ knowledge and awareness of the full breath of cyber affairs issues – from technology and threats to decision-making and the nature of cyber and beyond.

CEO Dr Lesley Seebeck said the ANU Cyber Institute aims “to transform cyber for the betterment of humanity”.

“For the Cyber Bootcamp Project this means extending beyond simply developing cybersecurity specialists,” she said.

“Instead the bootcamp will focus on developing skills in good people to conceive, construct and care for good, adaptable, human-centred, secure, resilient systems, which account for the people who use or are supported by them.”

The bootcamp was officially launched at ANU on Monday by Australia’s Ambassador for Cyber Affairs, Dr Tobias Feakin.

“Australia’s vision for an open, free and secure cyberspace is impossible to achieve alone,” Dr Feakin said.

“We are pleased to be partnering with ANU and our regional neighbours to deliver this initiative.

“The Cyber Bootcamp Project has been designed to bring together complementary skills and expertise from across government, academia and the private sector to deliver a comprehensive, holistic and innovative training program to our regional partners.”

 

Each bootcamp includes a two-week intensive program in Australia, where participants engage in interactive workshops, exercise scenarios, industry site visits, and dialogues with Australian Government agencies.
