Australia Information Security Australia (AISA) national conference will tackle the security “revolution” when it launches in Sydney this November.
"With all the targeted attacks and data breaches regularly reported, some would argue we're less secure today than we were three years ago" AISA national director Keith Price said.
"With nation-states after intellectual property, cybercriminals going after the money, and groups like Anonymous and LulzSec exposing security weaknesses for fun, it's time to rethink our approach."
Speakers for the conference include cryptography guru Bruce Schneier; Cisco CISO John Stewart; Tenable's security chief Marcus Ranum; Commonwealth Bank’s CIO Michael Harte; Google's chief technology advocate Michael Jones; and forensics expert Paul Henry.
Price said the event is geared to security professionals including specialists in governance, strategy, policy and compliance, to architecture, systems engineering and security testing.
“The conference brings together a cross-section of the leading thinkers in the business-centric information security,” Price said.
More than 500 security professionals are expected to attend.
The conference will be held on November 9 at the Sydney Convention Centre, Darling Harbour. It is open only to AISA members, for free. AISA membership costs $55 a year.
