In this session, Narelle Clark, CEO of the Internet Association of Australia, will discuss the challenges of the modern internet and review practical solutions and future challenges to the internet suitable for both citizens and network builders and operators.</p> <p>This session will feature a rundown of threats that can be faced, from technical, structural or regulatory, and then will go through some solutions such as peering. </p> <img alt="User-added image" src=";oid=00D90000000o5NE&amp;lastMod=1626919081000"></img><br><br><u><b>Notice for ACS Members</b></u><br><br><i>When attending virtual events, in order to claim and qualify for the required CPD hours.
