Longer than Fortnite

The feds announce $8m in first funding for its Cyber Security Skills Partnership Innovation Fund

La Trobe U gets most money, (if its award being the only one with an amount mentioned is an indication) – $2.35m “to raise awareness” of “cyber security skills and training opportunities” among 80 000 high school students. That sort of money should buy a bunch of TikTok memes, which could come in handy convincing people that there’s more on-line than Fortnite.  

And if any are interested the Australian Cyber Security Growth Network leads a project to develop a “practical” cyber security traineeship for 200 participants.
