ANU’s data disaster

At least it will make a great case-study

ANU is still cleaning-up after the hack by villains un-named, of 19 years of staff, student and supplier records (CMM yesterday). But at least, a learned reader remarks, the data disaster will make an excellent case study for the university’s  Cyber Institute.

According to the university, the Institute’s hub, “will cover a range of bespoke and highly specialised technologies, operated by a diverse and ever-changing mix of staff, students, and visitors on a distributed network within an academic institution which is a foreign target of interest.”

It appears they got that last bit right.
