AUSCSEC’S CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

  • Mentoring – AUSCSEC Directors are passionate about cybersecurity; they also strongly believe in building long-lasting relationships
  • Each of the Directors has a unique connection back to their grass-roots and knows how important it is to give back by helping someone to improve their knowledge and learnings. AUSCSEC believes that it is an absolute privilege to be allowed to accelerate other peoples’ careers by passing on knowledge and valuable lessons learned. It not only feels good letting someone in on the pitfalls of life but also knowing that it is the right thing to do.

  • Mentoring is beneficial to both the Mentee and the Mentor. Mentoring sharpens your mind and re-tests your thinking on issues. Mentoring forces you to re-engage your listening skills and reminds you that quiet reflection and listening to someone can reshape and reinvigorate your ideas. Mentoring makes you a better communicator and provides endless opportunities for your Mentee to use you as a sounding board for their great ideas and provides them with a safe sandbox to play in. To have the chance to shape the next set of leaders is one that AUSCSEC Directors don’t want to miss
  • Ultimately, our vision is to help build a cyber-resilient community. Mentoring provides an opportunity to help shape local attitudes to cyber and by doing so, helping to contribute to building a cyber-resilient nation
