Welcome to Siebert Lubbe & Alliance of four universities to deliver game changer in education
The Four-Nation Cyber Security virtual study tour, in collaboration with our colleagues in the United Kingdom and South Africa, has showcased the best practices of six host universities from the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. The virtual study tour facilitated networking with peers from across the northern and southern hemisphere as delegates came together to consider the security challenges currently facing institutions everywhere.
The 2020 Inaugural AHECS Cybersecurity Summit was held online event across three days Monday 02 – Wednesday 04 November 2020. The theme was “Bridging the Gap”.
Across the three days we had 208 unique attendees including 112 delegates, 28 AHECS Partner members, 5 speakers (that were non-partner/sponsor) and 60 sponsors interacted, presented, engaged and networked. The Summit attracted registrations from Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, Canada and the US.
We have almost reached the end of what must be our toughest year yet in Higher Education. I’m sure all of the community has been tested in ways you never imagined this year, whether it be dealing with technology change at an unprecedented speed, navigating significant changes to our roles and teams, or just battling to stay sane in a locked-down world. I would like to think that everyone’s connection in this community has been some help in some way to deal with one or more of these challenges, I know it has been for me.
Following the recent election, we welcome Warwick Calkin, Chief Digital & Information Officer, UWA as CAUDIT’s new Vice President and Vito Forte, Director - Digital and Campus Services & CIO, Edith Cowan University to the Executive Committee. An excellent group to be guiding CAUDIT into 2021!
Participating in their final group session covering future goal setting, running successful meetings and the ever-important presentations back to the group, the 13 participants of the CAUDIT Managers Program have now completed the 2020 program.
The participants from the 2020 program have been committed to the revised online structure throughout the program despite the challenges that this style can entail. The program has been instrumental in supporting them as they navigated a busy, tumultuous, trying and yet inspiring year.
CAUDIT along with AHECS Partners AAF, AARNet, AusCERT and REANNZ with the AHECS Cybersecurity Summit Program Committee are pleased to announce registration is now open for the inaugural AHECS Cybersecurity Summit.
In collaboration with PaceLearning, CAUDIT will facilitate a free, two-hour ‘Powering Up’ session for the alumni of the CAUDIT Managers Program.
The participants of the CAUDIT Managers Program (CMP) have come together to participate in their second round of‘ online group workshops. The sessions explored the themes of ‘Self Mastery’ with a greater focus on 'Resilience', the ‘Art of Influence’ and ‘Straight Talk’, all of which are crucial skills for effective managers to master.
With exposure to leadership foundations, techniques for coaching, building resilience, influencing, and, facilitating difficult conversations, participants are developing highly relevant skills as today's new and experienced managers.
