ABOUT THE CENTRE

Based at Docklands at the newly refurbished Goods Shed precinct where we will be close to other research collaborators and industries. This will allow us to build strong collaborations to solve practical cyber security problems.

 

The OCSC is future proofing the community. While companies are keeping up with new technologies, they may not be able to deal with the accelerating pace of that technology or keeping up with the risks involved in such technology.

OCSC will work with industries and services to keep information secure and to anticipate new advances in this area. Specialists will be close to new ideas, new products new concepts. And as specialists in cyber security, they are better placed to anticipate the future of technology and the associated risks and rewards.

OUR PARTNERS

We work with industry and government partners to provide advice on current and future security threats, to develop new technology and create commercialisation opportunities, to train staff and students on the latest techniques for protecting security.

 

 

Monash University

University of Melbourne

Deakin University

Federation University

RMIT University

Swinburne University of Technology

La Trobe University

Victoria University

All modern businesses and organisations including not for profit organisations use technology to maintain information. The integrity of that information is vital and the reputation of that organisation can be unravelled in a matter of hours if security is not made a priority.

 

Our role will be to provide training courses to ensure that Victoria has a workforce that can meet the demand for cyber security skills.
