The Australian Centre for Cyber Security has launched a three-year investigation of information security education policy and pedagogy. The project will include academic papers, workshops and three annual flagship conferences between now and 2019. We launched the project with a seminar and ACCS Discussion Paper No. 4: Mastering the Cyber Security Skills Crisis: Realigning Education Outcomes to Industry Requirements in August 2017.
The first one-day conference scheduled for 27 November is intended to stimulate fresh ideas and policy proposals for framing and managing cyber security education in ways that create new synergies between universities, business, governments and the less structured creative communities, both within and across national borders. The papers from this first annual conference will be published in an edited volume in 2018. The Australian Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet is co-sponsoring the conference. The conference will be followed by a one-day policy workshop on 28 November.
