Event overview

The COVID-19 pandemic has seen a spate of cybercrime activity across community and corporate Australia. Malicious campaigns including email spam, malware and ransomware are adding to the growing threat to organisations, infrastructure and the national economy.

 Cybercrime wipes $1billion from the national economy yearly reports The Australian Crime Intelligence Commission. How can organisations remain vigilant and protect themselves in these unprecedented times?

 Austal Chief Executive Officer, David Singleton will share for the first time a detailed account of the cyber-attack on his global business and the cost to business and reputation.

 CEDA’s livestream provides an informative overview of the attack coupled with a panel of industry experts providing policy, infrastructure and technological insights.

 Most agree it’s not if but when attacks will happen. This discussion will highlight the importance of a proactive approach to taking responsibility for cybersecurity risks. Cybersecurity should be at the forefront of every process as we continue the migration to an interconnected society responding to the challenges that come with natural disasters, pandemics, rise of automation, big data and the internet of things (IoT).
