Recently, the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) hosted a delegation from Papua New Guinea (PNG) to sign a renewed Australia-PNG Memorandum of Understanding in relation to cyber cooperation. During this visit, officials from the PNG Department of Information and Technology (DICT) visited CIT Reid to tour the CIT facilities, meet with CIT Cyber Security students, and learn more about CIT's high-quality cybersecurity training programs.
The delegates discussed a range of current issues facing the region and shared Papua New Guinea Government's key objectives relating to digital transformation, including legislative reform, vision and direction, investment priorities and improved coordination and implementation across different sectors in PNG.
Abigail Mohe, a CIT Cyber Security and ICT student from PNG spoke about her experiences studying at CIT and working in IT within the public sector.
"CIT is such a supportive place to study," Abigail said.
"I have learnt so much from the teachers, many who are working in the industry themselves. The skills I learnt are current to the workplace. I see a great career ahead and encourage others, especially women to work in the cybersecurity industry."
