La Trobe U hires senior code safe keeper

Jill Slay is the inaugural La Trobe U Optus professor of cyber security. Professor Slay will move from the Australian Centre for Cyber Security at UNSW Canberra to build a teaching and research resource at LTU, including a “virtual facility” for research into practical security applications. She will continue as the Australian Computer Society’s director of cyber resilience.

The LTU investment follows last month’s announcement of a joint Flinders U and Cisco cyber security course. A multi-state TAFE partnership committed to industry-linked cyber security diplomas and certificates was announced in December and last September an Edith Cowan led consortium won seven years of funding for a Cyber Security CRC.
