Academia

Immediate focus is being given to students from primary to tertiary level of education, given the need to ensure a stronger skills base on cyber security for the near future. This entails collaboration with education authorities and key educational institutions, leading at this stage to sponsoring of related equipment, training kits for educational purposes as well as potential work-related research opportunities. Furthermore, cyber security education is also being promoted through the organisation of events such as hackathons, whereby students may engage in online games that convey the attack and defence perspectives within the cyber world, as well as through school drama activities involving student participation on related cyber security themes.

Ultimately, an academia that possesses a strong cyber security culture focus may facilitate preparedness and resilience by society to counter attack effectively within a continuously evolving cyber threat landscape.
