<div>Join us at this breakfast event to hear international experts discuss Cybersecurity in the global arena as well as special guest, Alastair MacGibbon, Special Adviser to the Prime Minister on Cyber Security. <br><br>Cybersecurity awareness is now at an all-time high, thanks in part to widely publicised breaches that we read about on an almost monthly basis. However many businesses, small and large, still underestimate the potential for a cyber-attack against their organisation -- and the cost to their business -- should one occur, now estimated to be around $419,000 (ACS <i>Australia’s Digital Pulse </i>2017 report).</div> <div> </div> <div>Our world today is built upon technology, but technology is only one component in the equation for cyber-resilience: people and their potential is the critical cornerstone in building effective cyber-resilience for any organisation.<br><br><b>Professional Year Students please note: This event will not contribute to your Professional Year student requirements.</b><br><br><b>Special guest:</b></div> <ul><li>Alastair MacGibbon, Special Adviser to the Prime Minister on Cyber Security</li></ul> <div><b>International expert panel on building cyber-resilience:</b></div> <ul><li>David Shearer, CEO of ISC2</li><li>Matt Loeb, CEO of ISACA</li><li>Professor Jill Slay, Head of ACS’ Cyber Taskforce</li></ul>
