Deakin success at cyber security awards
It was a double success for Deakin University when the Australian Information Security Association (AISA) announced the winners of its eighth AISA Cyber Security Awards in October.
Deakin was named Cyber Security Educator of the Year – a great result for the third year running – and Professor Robin Doss from Deakin’s School of Information Technology and Centre for Cyber Security Research and Innovation (CSRI) was awarded Cyber Security Researcher of the Year.
AISA says its annual awards recognise and promote 'excellence, innovation and professionalism in the area of cyber security by individuals, projects, teams and organisations'.
'I am honoured to receive this award from Australia’s peak industry body in cyber security,' Professor Doss says.
'I see this award as a recognition of the strong research capability that we have at Deakin in cyber security, particularly around security and privacy research in smart and critical infrastructures.
'The award provides a platform for us to strengthen our industry collaborations on both blue sky and applied research in this emerging area.'
Established in 1999, AISA is a not-for-profit organisation which has become the recognised peak industry body for information security in Australia. Damien Manuel, Director of CSRI, is the current Chair of AISA, a voluntary position.
