Feel free to bring lunch with you :)Anyone is welcome, you may be a long-time Christian, or just someone (of other faith or no faith) who would like to read about Jesus with others.

The Australian Cyber Security Centre are holding a Spearphishing 101 Workshop on Campus on Thursday 24th October from 10.00am – 1.00pm in 11B50. Spearphishing is a targeted method of stealing information by sending fraudulent messages. Cyber adversaries go to great lengths to make their messages look legitimate and from a trustworthy source, so that prospective victims are more likely to click on malicious links or download malicious attachments.Executive Assistants and first points of contact are one of an organisation’s most important lines of defence. They are the gate keepers to decision makers and financial officers, and their decision when receiving an email containing a suspicious link or attachment can be the deciding factor to a company being compromised. Whilst technical measures cannot be overlooked, training and empowering individuals to identify, understand and appropriately respond to spearphishing emails is equally important.
