Empowering Australian Cybersecurity through education, community and passion!
The Australian Cybersecurity Education Summit brings together the major cybersecurity educators and leaders in the profession from across Australia to discuss and explore how together we can address the issue of cyber skill shortages nationwide and around the world.
How we can all more effectively produce much needed Australian cybersecurity professionals at scale, and how industry can partner with educators to provide rich real world educational experiences for students.
As educators, it is vital that we foster ongoing engagement and dialog with the wider industry and community, to understand what students need to be equipped with prior to entering the workforce. The Summit facilitates to nurture these practical partnerships to improve how we teach and grow talented cyber experts and bring us one step closer to solving the national shortage of cyber professionals.
The Summit also aims to build exposure, understanding and expertise in cybersecurity education, sharing it with secondary and tertiary educators who will in turn help the next generation of students develop an understanding and empathy of such an exciting and rapidly developing field.
