"The Cyber Engineering Community of Practice is a forum for engineers working in cyber related roles to come together to share ideas, develop skills and network with fellow cyber engineers. Cyber is a cross disciplinary challenge that requires a cross disciplinary engineering approach, it is relevant to every discipline of engineering.
I would also add that cyber security is too narrow a view of the cyber profession, there are engineers working in cyber security, cyber operation contributing to the cyber resilience of industry, government and indeed the nation. This new Community of Practice is a opportunity for not only engineers working in those roles, but anyone interested in learning or sharing cyber related information to come together. I encourage you to get engaged"

About the Cyber Engineering Community
Communities of Practice are focused on a particular topic that crosses industry and discipline boundaries and facilitate sharing of knowledge, both online and offline, with the aim of generating practical outputs of use to its members.
Cyber engineering involves the design, implementation, maintenance and improvement of measures used to protect the confidentiality, integrity and availability of systems and information.
Cyber engineering includes the understanding of a broad spectrum of security risks and threats that need to be eliminated or mitigated, when creating, designing, evaluating and using all types of digital technologies, consisting of hardware, firmware and software components or applications in systems.
The Engineers Australia Cyber Engineering Community of Practice (CoP) serves as both a strategic and functional vehicle. Engagement by the CoP will focus on trends, risks, threats, impacts, controls and good practices associated with all aspects of cyber risks related to people, process and technologies. The scope of activities will include Cyber Security and the threats or risks to the Computer and Telecom infrastructure and services. Threats or risks to infrastructure and services used by end-users and their social interactions will also be included.
