  • Digital Identity (PDF - 174.0 KB)

    Friday 2 December 2016

    While AIIA is pleased with what appears to be adoption of a federated approach to digital identity for government services purposes, we are disappointed with the lack of genuine engagement of our industry in the process. This is despite our ongoing efforts to engage with the DTA and open offers to leverage the expertise and experience of the sector to assist in the design and early alpha development processes. AIIA has a number of members with specific expertise in this area, including the ability to draw on experience and intelligence from implementations around the world.

  • Program Guidelines – Academic Centres of Cyber Security Excellence (PDF - 96.6 KB)

    Monday 28 November 2016

    In principle, AIIA supports ACCSE and its objectives to build cyber security skills in Australia. We have some concerns around the current approach and selection criteria. The selection criteria is mostly focused on assessing what universities are doing to date. AIIA argues the need is rather, on addressing the gaps, identifying best practices to meet the gap and incentivising action. The ACCSE can be a great opportunity to lift the bar in cyber security education.

As outlined below, AIIA would like to propose to the Government how, with some shift in focus, the Premium could be used to help drive the employability of ICT graduates.
