Sydney's Intercontinental Hotel played host to the first 'Security on the Move' event, aimed at taking AusCERT and SC Magazine closer to the action.
The event was attended by members of the IT security, banking, utilities, telecommunications, research and government sectors.
Graham Ingram, general manager of AusCERT, kicks off the event with some statistics on how frequently the organisation contacts Australian webmasters to tell them sites are infected with SQL injection attacks.
He also took a very strong position against the lack of security foresight in the Australian Government's e-health scheme.
Delegates look on.
Trend Micro CTO Raimund Genes provides a global perspective on the battle to protect enterprise systems.
Delegates were the first to get their hands on SC Magazine's first Australian print edition, which features the opinions of many of the industry's best and brightest, as well as some deep investigative journalism.
SC Magazine editor Darren Pauli moderates a panel discussion.
Bruce van der Graaf of the NSW Police calls for more law enforcement resources to be dedicated to battling cybercrime.
He said user education and industry collaboration can only get us so far - a small increase in policing resources could equate to a much larger number of successful prosecutions.
Federal Government attendees look on.
AusCERT's Marco Ostini and Graham Ingram, UNSW researcher Alana Maurushat and Trend Micro's Raimund Genes were among those presenting at the event.
Trend Micro's John Papanidis takes notes. There was plenty of tweeting on the #Auscert hashtag.
