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.

Please join us for the next CCCR seminar, all welcome.Abstract: Scholars in Australia and elsewhere have catalogued the numerous ways that settler writers have fallen short in representing indigenous characters, cultures, histories and stories in fiction. Approaching the creative component of his doctoral thesis, Ian was confronted with the need attempt exactly that kind of representation if he was to respond honestly to his research findings. So, he turned to the work of Aboriginal and other indigenous scholars who have addressed the issue, as well as non-indigenous scholars they cited, to produce a typology of the common missteps and mistakes - the pernicious tropes - that he needed to avoid, which then formed the basis of the decisions he has made about representation in his creative piece. This seminar presents the typology for comment and critique.

Up to 60% of stroke survivors still have non-functional arms six months after stroke. Thousands of repetitions of movements are needed to improve function via neuroplasticity. Face-to-face time with therapists will never be able to provide all the hours needed, so the search is on to develop assistive devices which patients can use both under supervision and on their own to achieve these repetitions. We will likely be relying more on these devices as they become more widely available in the future.This talk will describe some of the devices in development, as well as those available now. Professor van Vliet, a stroke researcher and clinician, works with engineers on developing devices to improve stroke outcomes, and uses devices in her clinical practice. The focus of the talk will be on sensor-based devices such those using gaming technology, virtual reality and exoskeletons, which provide feedback to the person so that they can improve motor control as they practice. The current barriers to more people being able to access these devices will be discussed along with potential future solutions.

Melbourne group, PRESS CLUB release their second full-length album, Wasted Energyand head off around the country in November. Press Club’s sonic calling cards are all present on Wasted Energy; the fuzz-addled, kicked-in speaker bass of Iain MacRae, the razor sharp guitar tones of Greg Rietwyk, the merciless drumming of Frank Lees, not to forget the emotionally charged vocal deliverance of Natalie Foster. Two singles have been taken from the self-produced Wasted Energy so far.‘Get Better’, and ‘Thinking About You’, in which Foster recounts her experience with a stalker. Never one to shy away from what is uncomfortable, the song embodies a freak’s tongue, cooing unbridled down the phone line; abrupt, uninvited, and out of the blue.Supported by Johnny Hunter and Slagatha Christie. ** This event is 18+ **
Australia is the driest inhabited continent on Earth yet has been home to thousands of generations. Traditional knowledge of finding and re-finding water sites has always been integral to Australia’s First Peoples for survival in an arid landscape and protecting water remains a cultural obligation.The challenge for First Peoples is to ensure their relationship with water is celebrated by all Australians, not diminished by modern water planning or excluded from environmental flow management.Bradley Moggridge explores historical challenges and institutional responses in integrating First Peoples’ cultural values into water planning and management, coupled with on-the-ground applications of cultural value water for two Western NSW Rivers. Finally, Bradley investigates how integrating First People’s perspectives into water management has worked in New Zealand.Bradley Moggridge is currently a PhD Candidate and IAE Advisor at the University of Canberra.
Drones provide a means of sensing the earth; witnessing human impact on the natural world, diminishing habitats, and disappearing wild animals. But drones also crash into everything: oceans, lakes, glaciers, trees, cars, people, buildings, temples, birds, power poles, bridges, prisons, oil refineries, oil pipelines, nuclear power plants, airplanes, helicopters, agricultural fields, stadiums, etc.And yet, even when the drone is crashing or has crashed it remains an important object through which to understand the emergent relationship between humans, technologies, and species. This presentation examines this relationship through the event of the crashing drone, exploiting a material link shared by crashing drones and collapsing species.

Recent media reports paint a disturbing picture of housing affordability in the ACT, particularly for young people and families in rental accommodation or seeking to rent, as well those wishing to enter home ownership. Indeed, by some measures, the ACT rental market appears to be the worst in Australia.This IGPA Public Lecture will examine the policy context and framework under which housing affordability has deteriorated in Canberra where the Government exercises a much higher level of control over the supply compared to other jurisdictions.The Seminar is jointly convened by Professorial Fellow Jon Stanhope AO and Adjunct Professor Dr Khalid Ahmed PSM.

He is also actively engaged in local politics, particularly on urban development and public transport, and is a founding member of the Canberra Planning Action Group, which is seeking to develop a Canberra-wide perspective on, and improvement of, the ACT government’s strategies of urban renewal.ANNA DENNIS graduated from ANU with Honours in Sociology in 2018.
