Charles Sturt University joins NSW Cyber Security Network

Charles Sturt brings new opportunities for cyber security research and development in regional NSW.

The NSW Cyber Security Network (NSWCSN) is pleased to welcome a new member, Charles Sturt University, adding to the strength of the network’s research capabilities and providing new opportunities for cyber security research and development in regional NSW.

“Our network brings universities together to deepen R&D cyber security research and build practical capabilities to support the growth of the NSW economy,” said Todd Williams, Director of the NSWCSN. “We also strive to bring industry and universities closer together so that our R&D grants to universities are targeted and relevant. The addition of Charles Sturt University to our network is a fabulous development for us and for regional NSW.”

This approach is a natural fit for Charles Sturt University, whose mission is to build knowledge and skills in the regions, and values collaboration with industries and communities in teaching and research.

“I look forward to working with NSWCSN to boost momentum in cyber security research. With around 18,000 cyber security workers needed in Australia by 2026, there will be no shortage of jobs for graduates and nowhere will these jobs be more important than in our regions,” said Tanveer Zia, Associate Professor in Computing at the Charles Sturt School of Computing and Mathematics. “At Charles Sturt, we are already deeply engaged with raising cyber security awareness through programs like our ‘Girls in Cyber Security Advancing’ project, but know there is much more to be done, so the membership of the NSWCSN is a great opportunity.”

“The NSWCSN already numbers seven of the state’s leading universities among its members. The addition of Charles Sturt University, which is Australia’s largest provider of postgraduate degrees in information technology, brings significant research expertise to the Network, while also giving it its first regional member,” said the NSW Chief Scientist & Engineer, Professor Hugh Durrant-Whyte.
