Cyber Security Concern

 Australia’s independent national quality assurance and regulatory body for higher education, the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency, has identified some Australian higher education providers’ websites that appear to have been hacked and redirect students to contract cheating websites.

Box Hill Institute’s website has not been identified as one of those that’s been hacked but we are undertaking an investigation of the website to check for infiltration or vulnerability.

In the meantime, please be wary of URL addresses, links to discussion forums, particularly in WordPress, and fake scholarship/essay contests designed to harvest original student work that is on sold to commercial academic cheating companies.

Box Hill Institute continually works to address cyber security threats and keep your data safe.
