CSIRO matches SMEs with cyber security mentors
Information Age ACS, Other, 03/02/2022, David Braue
Free security training and mentorship supports SME innovation. David Hine’s expertise may be building horticultural software platforms, but the developer realised that cyber security was becoming crucial as his clients increasingly generated massive amounts of soil testing and other data to track agricultural productivity. His firm, Land and Water Management (LWM), is a small partnership that relies heavily on outside contractors, so cyber security skills were thin on the ground which is why he jumped at the opportunity to undergo a 10-week CSIRO boot camp combining cyber security training with crucial academic and industry mentorship.
