The objective of this initiative is to help safeguard the digital assets 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 which 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. The business case for the Australian Higher Education Cybersecurity Service (AHECS) is being finalised and will go to Members soon.
