The formation of a new research and postgraduate education institute, the Information Security Institute (ISI), was proposed for the Queensland University of Technology in 2004. The ISI concept involves a collaborative research undertaking of the Faculty of Built Environment and Engineering (BEE), the Faculty of Business (BUS), the Faculty of Information Technology (IT), and the Faculty of Law (LAW). The formation of the ISI was put forward as the next logical step in consolidating the already acknowledged expertise that the university had developed in all aspects of information security over the past 16 years. The ISI has been established to pursue multi-disciplinary research in technology, legal, policy and governance issues related to all aspects of information security and assurance.
