Slides from the ECU Security Research Institute seminar Tuesday 16 October 2012, presented by Dr Andrew Woodward.
This year saw the Security Research Centre at ECU complete a second round of cyber security testing for the State Office of the Auditor General.
The previous audit highlighted numerous deficiencies and a lack of basic network defences across all agencies. Whilst the results this year revealed that the situation has improved somewhat, there are still issues.
This talk will discuss the methodology used by the team at Edith Cowan University, generic vulnerabilities and findings, and will speculate on the role of the Common Usage Agreement and Office of the Chief Information Officer.
