What we do

The increasing number and sophistication of cyber attacks, information thefts and frauds means we need effective and robust security across the collegiate University. The Information Security Team (IST) provides support and guidance to make our teaching, administration research and collaboration as secure as possible. Our goals are to:

  • Enable secure research, collaboration, teaching and administration by promoting informed and security-driven decisions.
  • Protect University systems and data by monitoring and managing technical threats.
  • Drive the design and implementation of secure IT Systems across the University.
  • Share good practice and foster a strong information security culture across the University.

The IST provides specialised support and tools to divisions, departments and faculties, so that they can implement the necessary security arrangements and effectively manage risks.

We provide several services to help achieve these goals.
