Cyber Security Foundry

Information Security is an increasingly important challenge for most organisations. The consequences of a successful deliberate attack or accidental leak can be severe, and the need for comprehensive protection is critical. Many organisations are not well prepared, and there is a skill shortage in New Zealand and internationally in this sector. This means there are large opportunities for research and the development of security tools and services. The Cyber Security Foundry (CSF) is a hub for world-leading technical expertise, industry collaboration, training of security professionals, and the development of new security solutions.

The Cyber Security Foundry will be a hub for industry-focused research based on next-generation technology. Through the collaboration of leading academia, industry, and government, the Cyber Security Foundry will create a stimulating environment for research, the dissemination of research, and it will cast the next generation of Cyber Security practitioners.
