Granted, one may not want to engage ANU’s advice on cyber security, but asking Edith Cowan U might not be a bad idea.

A learned reader points to ECU’s Cyber Check Me, pop-up events for small business in the university’s catchment. ECU is also home to the Cyber Security CRC, which is tasked with “training the next generation of cyber security professionals.”
