The University of New South Wales (UNSW) has partnered with Telstra to co-develop two cyber security micro-credentials aimed at helping build the capabilities needed to combat the “increasing risk” of cybercrime that the digital economy brings.
With Safer Internet Day to be marked around the world on Tuesday, the UNSW Canberra Cyber has announced that it will join forces with other Australian and global educators to work towards creating a safer, better and more trustworthy internet, where everyone is empowered to use technology “responsibly, respectfully and creatively”.
ABC journalists' ignorance of technology has been on display once again, with senior broadcaster Patricia Karvelas displaying an acute lack of knowledge during an interview with former senator Nick Xenophon, whose legal firm has been hired by Huawei to help correct misconceptions about its operations.
The British Government has taken a much more intelligent approach to the 5G security issue and has conducted an open and transparent process around it, the local arm of Chinese telecommunications equipment vendor Huawei Technologies says, adding that it had fully co-operated with the process.
The United States says it sees no distinction between the core of a 5G network and its radio access network, and will reconsider sharing information with any ally that uses equipment made by Chinese vendor Huawei Technologies in its next-generation telecommunications network.
A cyber security and information warfare researcher from the University of New South Wales has issued what can be only described as an alarmist warning that the forthcoming Australian Federal Election will attract social media manipulation, nation-state attacks and a "swarm of advertising and messaging in platforms as diverse as Facebook and WeChat".
The US Government has threatened to withhold intelligence from Germany if Berlin uses equipment from Chinese telecommunications vendor Huawei Techologies or other Chinese firms in its 5G networks.
The continued insistence by the director of the Australian Signals Directorate, Mike Burgess, that there is no separation between the 5G core and the radio access network has been termed as "disappointing" by a network expert, who questioned where the evidence was for such a claim.
A spokesman from the Australian arm of Chinese telecommunications equipment vendor Huawei Technologies has expressed surprise about a report on Wednesday saying the Australian Government rejected an offer from the company to set up a cyber security testing centre, pointing out that this was something that it had first offered to the Gillard Government back in 2012.
Not all boards are taking IT security seriously. Perhaps surprisingly, some organisations don't have a security strategy, or don't see it in the context of a broader IT strategy, Centre for Internet Safety managing director Nigel Phair told iTWire.
