Here, at the University of Melbourne, the things that make us such an attractive place to study and work also make us a prime target for cybercrimes. Our world leading research, our powerful IP and the many personal and financial details the University holds make both individuals and the institution vulnerable to cyberthreats.
Our Approach to Cybersecurity
The University is working to uplift and bolster our current cybersecurity capability to prevent, detect, and respond to cyberthreats. New cybersecurity threats are discovered all the time and as soon as one threat is addressed, a new one takes its place.
A cybersecure University of Melbourne is one where we’ve reduced our vulnerability to cyberthreats while balancing our need for openness, autonomy and collaboration. Taking a risk based approach to cybersecurity means we can better balance these needs while still managing our risk exposure.
