Tesserent Academy created to boost local cyber skills


Tesserent, said to be Australia's largest listed dedicated cyber security company, has launched Tesserent Academy to improve the state of cyber security skills in this country.

Australia's Cyber Security Strategy 2020 noted the need for improved cyber skills in the workforce, and there are estimates of more than 7,000 new jobs in the area by 2024.

The government's strategy also notes the need for security training or professional development for board executives.

To support this, the Tesserent Academy will partner with the Melbourne Business School and the TAFE sector to develop and deliver programs that are relevant from the 'boardroom to basement' ensuring all parts of an organisation have access to leading edge security training.

These links will also help with the development of Tesserent's staff, and provide its customers with access to leading trainers and thought leaders in the industry.

"Tesserent's educational services and training division for staff and customers is designed to tackle the industry wide problem of talent shortages to improve the cyber ecosystem and develop talent for both Tesserent and our customers," said Tesserent co-CEO Julian Challingsworth.

In related news, Tesserent has created a new cyber innovation division to make strategic investments in proprietary Australian and New Zealand IP based products and companies that can take advantage of the group's customer base, skill sets, geographic coverage and funding ability.

"Tesserent's cyber innovation division is focussed on developing and investing in new cyber technologies, cyber products, and innovative companies that are developing leading technology platforms and tools that will enable Tesserent to deliver our mission to be the sovereign cybersecurity provider of choice for the protection of Australia and New Zealand's digital assets. The companies that join us accelerate their growth and market presence," said Challingsworth.

Tesserent chief people officer Emmeline McIIIree said "Tesserent has a high employee net promoter score which is above the industry average with 81% of employees recommending Tesserent as a great place to work."
