Every year, the Australian Information Security Association (AISA) awards an individual with AISA’s Trainee of the Year – an award that promotes excellence and innovation. Currently studying at Box Hill Institute, Joseph Speziale is the most recent recipient of the award and has been recognised for his professionalism in the area of information security.

Joseph is studying a Certificate IV in Information Technology (Specialising in Cyber Security) and has chosen Box Hill Institute to pursue his passion and interest in IT security. His determination to succeed has seen him go above and beyond his course curriculum to examine cyber security as well as undertake a Security Traineeship at NAB.

He says that it’s amazing how his course encourages him to understand and learn about cyber security. Joseph is excited to complete his studies at Box Hill Institute in 2017 and says the instructors and support network for students pushes him to do the best he can.
