"Australia’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic has shown the importance of secure online connectivity. It has also shown Australians’ resilience and resolve to work together for a common goal.

The Cyber Innovation Challenge turned out to be a wholesome learning experience for me. I got to interact and get mentored by industry experts who encouraged the participants to ask questions and gave the forum for us to share our ideas. The workshops and one-to-one consultation sessions helped me with exploring new concepts in the domain and in identifying the gaps in my skillset that needed improvement. I feel that I have gained pointers for my career pathway and looking forward to working in the industry.
