Cyber Security Training for All New Australian Defence Force Students

Greetings from the the University of NSW Canberra, where I am attending the ICT for Development Symposium. In his welcome, the UNSWC Deputy Rector, Professor John Arnold, pointed out that all undergraduates would be trained in cyber security, commencing 2015. This is very significant for national security as UNSW Canberra is the location of the Australian Defence Force Academy (ADFA) and trains Army, Navy and Air Force personnel. Northrop Grumman installed a "Cyber Range", which could be used as part of the training. However, while it will be very useful for all ADF personnel to have some knowledge of the topic Australia also needs a specialist CyberWarfare Battalion.
