iTWire – Monash, OCSC to deliver regional post-quantum crypto training
A Monash University led program aims aims to train Indo-Pacific organisations in post-quantum cryptography.
Monash University researchers and the Oceania Cyber Security Centre (OCSC) will operate the US government funded Post-Quantum Cryptography in the Indo-Pacific Program (PQCIP).
Cybersecurity and IT workers from Malaysia, Indonesia, Samoa, Tonga, Vanuatu, Papua New Guinea (PNG), Kiribati, Federated States of Micronesia (FSM), Tuvalu, the Cook Islands and Nauru will receive free training in advanced cryptography during the next three years.
According to project director Associate Professor Ron Steinfeld of Monash University’s Faculty of Information Technology, encryption is one of the key safeguards against data breaches.
“However, most currently deployed cryptography is not strong enough against attacks from large scale quantum computers, which can rapidly decrypt most of today’s encrypted data, and we expect such computers to become a reality over the coming years,” he said.
“Recently, we have seen a huge increase in cyberattacks and data leaks. It is critically important now to help neighbouring countries strengthen their capabilities to withstand existing cyber threats while also preparing for the next generation of attacks.”
The PQCIP will help participating organisations and government entities conduct a detailed assessment of their current post-quantum cybersecurity capabilities, and will provide tailored education, planning and cyber threat evaluation.
The program’s goal is to give participants an advanced understanding of post-quantum cryptography, a comprehensive knowledge of related tools, and the ability to develop a plan to secure their organisations from quantum computing threats.
OCSC head of research and capacity building Dr James Boorman said the program will be free for anyone managing or working in IT or cybersecurity within most government entities (excluding military, intelligence, or law-enforcement) or organisations in any of the 11 countries,
“We are keen to hear from anyone interested in building these capabilities. Collaboratively standardising and enhancing cybersecurity within these countries will result in stronger relationships and data protection across the entire region.”
ENABLE HYBRID CLOUD & REDUCE NETWORK LATENCY WHITEPAPER
Hybrid cloud promises to bring together the best of both worlds enabling businesses to combine the scalability and cost-effectiveness of the cloud with the performance and control that you can get from your on-premise infrastructure.
Reducing WAN latency is one of the biggest issues with hybrid cloud performance. Taking advantage of compression and data deduplication can reduce your network latency.
Research firm, Markets and Markets, predicted that the hybrid cloud market size is expected to grow from US$38.27 billion in 2017 to US$97.64 billion by 2023.
Colocation facilities provide many of the benefits of having your servers in the cloud while still maintaining physical control of your systems.
Cloud adjacency provided by colocation facilities can enable you to leverage their low latency high bandwidth connections to the cloud as well as providing a solid connection back to your on-premises corporate network.

PROMOTE YOUR WEBINAR ON ITWIRE
It’s all about Webinars.
Marketing budgets are now focused on Webinars combined with Lead Generation.
If you wish to promote a Webinar we recommend at least a 3 to 4 week campaign prior to your event.
The iTWire campaign will include extensive adverts on our News Site itwire.com and prominent Newsletter promotion https://itwire.com/itwire-update.html and Promotional News & Editorial. Plus a video interview of the key speaker on iTWire TV https://www.youtube.com/c/iTWireTV/videos which will be used in Promotional Posts on the iTWire Home Page.
Now we are coming out of Lockdown iTWire will be focussed to assisting with your webinars and campaigns and assistance via part payments and extended terms, a Webinar Business Booster Pack and other supportive programs. We can also create your adverts and written content plus coordinate your video interview.
We look forward to discussing your campaign goals with you. Please click the button below.
