Event overview

Across sectors locally and internationally the threat of cyber intrusions into increasingly interconnected systems are of growing concern to policy makers, government and the private sector. In defence alone, intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance and electronic warfare approaches have been transformed.

Australia is well placed to devise local protections and to maximise participation in the valuable global cyber security market. Leaders in cyber security are working now to ensure:

  • A defence strategy reflects cyber security threats and the changing nature of warfare;
  • Adaptive and responsive cyber security and industry development initiatives;
  • A pipeline of education and skills for digital and cyber security future

Join business leaders from across sectors to hear expert speakers on rapidly evolving cyber security threats, strategies in place to protect Australian governments, our military and our businesses, and the growing global demand for cyber security expertise.
