Dr. Bruce Armstrong, BBus(DDIAE)MLitt(NE)PhD(UWS) I am a senior lecturer with the School of Multimedia and Information Technology at the Coffs Harbour Campus of Southern Cross University. My main teaching is in the areas of computer security and control, systems analysis and design, and information resources management. Prior to joining academia I worked with the Department of Defense as a project leader undertaking development of operational and strategic systems. Since joining academia I have undertaken numerous consultancies for small business and local regional development agencies. My current research interests involve information management strategies for regional centres, and internet and computer usage in regional and rural Australia. I am a member of both the Centre of Economic and Community Development and the Centre for Aged Services Learning and Research Collaboration.
