We hope you will enjoy this semester's newsletter and keeping up-to-date on the range of industry-relevant IT courses we deliver with Charles Sturt University. We had a fantastic first intake for our new Doctor of Information Technology and providing we can keep up the momentum, we are on track to have the largest number of Aussie IT Researchers of any university by the end of next year.

Microsoft have been fantastic in providing support for the establishment of the Doctorate.

In the past, I have featured the incredible mix of activities that our senior industry based lecturer in Cyber Security undertakes, including:
• Working for 23 years in the Cyber Security industry, including 13 years in Digital Forensics.
• Appearing on over 20 occasions as an Digital Forensics expert witness in Cyber Security lawsuits
One of our readers responded about the last item on Craig with 'I bet he never leaves his computer' so I have included a picture to prove this is not true.
Craig is currently running series of public Webinars on Cyber Security with his most recent one being:
Webinar: What to Do When Your Network is Hacked

Six months ago our Network Manager joined the Systems Administrators Guild of Australia (SAGE-AU) and the following is his feedback:
'The SAGE-AU mailing lists are an invaluable resource for any systems administrator. The discussions contain a wealth of information and expertise, and the response to any issues I have posted has been quick, accurate and really addressed the question. I estimate that we covered the full cost of my annual membership with the time saved from the very first posting I made.'
SAGE-AU is not for profit, volunteer based, organisation but it does take some dollars to run and the organisation is currently looking for more members. If you are supporting a Network I urge you to become member and also visit us at the Charles Sturt University Booth at the SAGE-AU Annual conference http://conference.sage-au.org.au/
