This partnership, celebrated amidst the vibrant backdrop of the ASEAN-Australia Special Summit in Melbourne, is not just a testament to our shared vision but a step forward towards securing a safer digital future for the Philippines and beyond.

A Shared Vision for Innovation and Education

DysrupIT has always been at the forefront of cybersecurity innovation, providing cutting-edge solutions that safeguard businesses and communities. Our partnership with DLSL, a respected institution with a rich history of academic excellence, is a leap towards empowering the next generation of cybersecurity professionals.

The MOU encapsulates our joint commitment to enhance academic disciplines and institutional linkages. It lays the foundation for:

What This Means for the Future

This MOU is the cornerstone of our mission to build a robust pipeline of talent equipped to tackle future and emerging cyber threats. By integrating JCU’s advanced cybersecurity curriculum with De La Salle’s academic rigor, we aim to create a unique educational exchange that benefits both faculty and students. This collaboration is a beacon for innovation, illuminating new pathways for students from De La Salle Lipa to gain invaluable experience in Australia and bring back knowledge and skills that will enrich the cybersecurity landscape in the Philippines.

Furthermore, this partnership aligns with Townsville’s ambition to establish itself as the next hub of innovation in QLD and Australia. By sharing skills and capabilities from the Philippines, we contribute to training veterans, First Nations people, and IT graduates from JCU in cybersecurity and other emerging technologies.

DysrupIT’s Journey Ahead

As we celebrate this pivotal moment, we also look forward to the implementation of this partnership and the tangible benefits it will bring to our communities. Our affiliation with the Australian Philippines Business Council and the visibility provided by their platforms, including the YouTube channel featuring our event video, is just the beginning.

This partnership with DLSL is a significant step for DysrupIT in our ongoing journey to champion cybersecurity innovation and education. It underscores our commitment to not just anticipate the future but to actively shape it.

Together with DLSL, we are not just preparing for the future of cybersecurity; we are defining it.
