ACS Victoria continues to push the cyber security agenda

Thursday, 01 Sep 2016

On Monday 29 August 2016, ACS Victoria together with the Minister for Small Business, Innovation and Trade Philip Dalidakis, launched the Victorian Government’s two week Digital Innovation Festival at their Thriving in a Digital and Secure Age luncheon.

Joined by 150+ representatives from government, industry and small business, the forum housed the discussion on what is fast becoming Australia’s biggest threat to the information age – the $17 billion cost of cybercrime; as well as shed fresh insight on how Australia can tackle its cyber security skills deficit and build a thriving cyber security ecosystem – with Victoria serving as a world-class cyber security hub. US-based CIO & CISO of Venafi, Tammy Moskites led the conversation for the afternoon with her key note presentation and perspective on global trends as the industry undergoes significant transformation and diversification.

ACS Victorian Chair, Craig Horne, moderated the post-lunch discussion on cyber security which included Mike Burgess, Chief Information Security Officer (CSIO) at Telstra; Mazino Onibere, Information Security Manager at NEC Australia; Andrew Dell, Chief Information Security Officer at NAB; and Rachael Falk, co-creator of the Five Knows of Cyber Security alongside Tammy Moskites and Minister Dalidakis.
