Our major external relationship is with Optus Business. La Trobe University and Optus Business have a strong strategic partnership developed in 2016. One of the results of this partnership was the creation of the Optus La Trobe Cyber Security Research Hub. Together, we've developed a series of strong cyber security courses. We also offer a growing number of executive and technical short courses with our partners and we host a CISCO Academy.

We have strong relationships with many industry leaders and experts:
