The objective of this initiative is to help safeguard the intellectual property and reputation of the HE sector and individual institutions through supporting members in adopting appropriate risk profiles and countering ever-increasing cybersecurity threats. Leveraging existing services that perform a valuable coordinating and advisory role. CAUDIT, AARNet and AusCERT are working together to address the unique challenges in and to the sector.
The initial presentation was delivered at the Autumn Members meeting in May 2019 and multiple presentations have since been delivered to different groups and agencies. The business case for the Australian Higher Education Cybersecurity Service (AHECS) has been finalised and approved by the CAUDIT Executive.
