Cyber for C-Suite

Posted on: Sunday, 4 March 2018 at 4:37:29 PM

Cyber Security remains listed among the top business risks within Australia.  Organisations such as ASIC and the AICD note that Boards are increasingly cognisant of cyber risks, however often lack momentum to practically address technology vulnerabilities.  It is both a governance and an operational challenge to oversee cyber risk and protect an organisation's data, without compromising opportunities for innovation.

The AICC(WA) has pursued a Cyber agenda since our inaugural Cyber Security trade delegation to Israel in 2016, led by former ASIO Director David Irvine AO, in conjunction with Professor Craig Valli, Director of ECU’s Security Research Institute.  Through this program, delegates explored Israel’s approach to cyber education, policy and regulation, investment, and technology innovation.  Israel’s resilience to Cyber is reinforced by more than 400 Cyber start up companies and 15% of global research and development funding for Cyber being directed to Israel’s innovation hubs.  Israel continues to deliver new Cyber protection within diverse sectors such as medical lifescience, agritech, watertech, cleantech and transport. 

Last year the AICC(WA) maintained a focus on Cyber through our FutureNOW series, where leading companies demonstrated how Perth is “32 milliseconds from anywhere” and presenting data on the impact and responses to cyber breaches from local businesses.   

The Chamber continues to extend its support to Cyber Security by facilitating an integrated workshop series called “Cyber for C-Suite”.  These sessions will be presented by Professor Valli, one of Australia’s foremost experts in Cyber Security.  In addition to drawing on his Israel and local industry connections, Professor Valli will provide a contemporary program to guide your organisation’s preparedness for cyber protection.
