Join us for this exclusive event.<br>We live in an age of mounting cyber opportunities in all areas of our industry. However, competing in the digital world is a struggle in an increasingly competitive global marketplace, and businesses have difficult choices to make. They must protect data and intellectual property while continuing technology innovations to bring products to scale.<br><br>It has become increasingly apparent that protecting data calls for continuous collaborations between the three sectors. The lack of domestic ICT graduates, high ICT employment demand and mass of cybercrimes affecting all sectors confirm this. The new <i>ACS Australia’s Digital Pulse </i>report shows less than 5,000 domestic ICT students graduating per year. It also highlights the need for 100,000 more ICT workers by 2023 just to meet business demand and an additional 100,000 to be a global leader. Despite the shortage, the Prime Minister’s 2016 vow to increase the nation’s cyber security due to imminent threats points specifically to a lucrative global cyber security market, which looks upward to <a href="https://www.computerworld.com.au/article/597985/cyber-security-enormous-opportunities-australian-business/" target="_blank">$230 billion</a> by 2020.<br><br>This shows great growth potential for businesses to grow the cyber security workforce in Australia. Business can capitalise by helping meet the demand in upskilling opportunities, opening a new space for cyber security with a talent pool globally recognised as a hive of valued cyber security activity. Education can increase and enhance their course portfolios to help feed the cyber security vacancy, and all the sectors can collaborate to support the Government with combating today’s menacing cyber criminals, with the average cost of a cyber attack to Australian business reaching $1.9 million.<br><br>The Cyber Security Breakfast panel will be sharing their frontline experiences and proactive insights with guests, discussing a unique path to cyber resilience that involves capitalising on the huge demand. Among other issues discussed, panelists will expertly examine: <ul><li>What actions can Government take so Australian business can be protected against major breaches that threaten the current system?</li><li>How is Government’s Cyber Resilience Taskforce expanding the toolkit of limited deterrence measures so that deterrence becomes effective rather than symbolic deterrence?</li><li>How can business benefit by a government partnership in the collaborative fight against cybercrime?</li><li>How can corporations, and even SMEs, priortise harm minimization while remaining lucrative?</li><li>How should corporations be training their employee base for guarding against cyber-attacks?</li><li>How can education market the employment opportunities of a rocketing ICT demand and help build a cyber-skilled nation by recruiting more domestic students into ICT programs?</li><li>How can the general citizen assist in the building of cyber secure infrastructures?</li></ul> The breakfast will conclude with a Q&amp;A, giving you the exclusive chance to ask questions to industry leaders from each sector of the economy and network with your peers thereafter.
