Day 1: Cyber Security

Digital growth drives digital risk

The theft of company data, proprietary information, patent and company secrets, security incursions to detect operating systems are very common and often go unreported. The reputational damage caused by these thefts is often the reason for failing to disclose security incursions, yet many recent attacks have occurred to deliver exactly that, reputational damage.

With more businesses and providing products and services online and the drive for government to transact online, the requirement to deliver secure and robust services is more important than ever before. Learning how to manage public information securely and stay ahead of cyber criminals is imperative for every organisation.

The Future is being Written in Lines of Code

To stay ahead in a future digital economy, businesses need to prepare for radical change. Today, the digital skills that underpin the success of our future economy lie in the hands of a small group of people.

How many business leaders can confidently say they understand what goes on behind the screen or how the hacker mindset works?

For leading businesses, innovation is no longer a one-off, it’s a necessary culture shift. Understanding the languages of technology; code, data, cyber security, machine learning, lean methodologies and beyond is a way to supercharge this new culture.

Decoded has grown in four years from a small start up to the world’s preeminent global technology educator, famous for teaching anyone to Code in a Day and on a mission to spread Digital Enlightenment.

Recently, Decoded have been working more deeply with global boards on how new kinds of business and leadership can ensure professionals thrive in the machine learning age and with governments to reimagine what a new education system needs to look like for the next generation.

Decoded successfully campaigned for code to be taught on the UK national curriculum. The first country to make it a mandatory for all children.

Decoded CEO Kathryn Parsons will share her story of how she took on a mission impossible, how she decoded the digital world and will share her observations about what we can expect and how we can prepare for the changes driven by technology which await us.

Digital growth drives digital risk... and opportunity

Through the Government’s new Cyber Security Strategy, we will be implementing a new cyber security approach that focuses on the opportunities of digital growth, not just the reduction of digital risks. Facilitating private-public cooperation, boosting innovation, and improving our cyber skills and education are going to be the bedrock of our cyber security. The future of cyber security does not rest only in the hands of the defenders.

Securing your information in migration to the cloud

This presentation will discuss the risk factors in “shared computer services” such as the cloud and examine the exposure of highly critical/sensitive IT assets to “untrusted” environments and their weaknesses.

Mobility and the challenge of securing devices in the field

This presentation will examine how mobile technologies are transforming the way agencies, like the NSW Fire Brigades, fulfil their mission to provide anywhere, anytime access to resources that can enable those in the field to do their jobs more effectively. It will look at the latest in mobility strategies and best practise.
Chief Information Security Officer, NSW Fire Brigades

Future proofing cyber security: Fixing our broken cyber security models

Our ‘always on’, ubiquitously connected, data driven world is challenging traditional cyber security paradigms. In the same way that ‘agile’ is the buzz word for new technology development, so too must it be for government and business approaches to cyber security. With a growth strategy that aims to ‘create’, ‘innovate’ and ‘transform’ we need to manage the risks of the disruptive technology we seek to embrace. The question is are our cyber security models and mindset up to it??

Australia’s Role in Shaping the International Cyber Environment

Today, organisations are increasingly interconnected, integrated, and interdependent. They employ technology and ubiquitous connectivity to share an unprecedented volume of information assets with customers, service providers, suppliers, partners, and employees. These sophisticated technologies enable organisations to perform business tasks with a velocity and degree of efficiency that are unprecedented. This presentation will discuss the emerging trends and challenges faced by large customer based companies as cyber crime increases and account credentials are compromised.

Security on a Shoestring - Helping Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) Protect Themselves from Cyber Threats

No matter how big or small your organisation is protecting your organisation from cyber threats is hard work. There are never enough resources, never enough budget or even enough time in the day to do everything you can possibly do, and you can never be 100% secure.

Unfortunately for SMEs, often they don't have dedicated security resources or even a security budget, and the impact of a security breach can quickly cause irreparable damage.

Cybersecurity - The ever evolving business challenge

As Cyber Security technologies, defence in depth architecture, advanced firewalls and intrusion detection/protection systems are implemented in ever increasing numbers, the hacking community have continued to accelerate the development of tools, techniques and methodologies to exploit the unprepared. This presentation will explore aspects of the ever evolving Cyber Security challenge to highlight the need to assist in establishing an integrated security program, supported by the necessary processes and skills/partnerships to prevent, detect and recover from ongoing cyber attacks.
Areas to be discussed include:

- Cyber threat trends
- The hacker motivation
- The virus threat explosion
- Online activity and location tracking
- Hacker search engines and how they are used
- Online Internet attack monitoring
- Modified electronics used by hackers  
- The Cyber Security skills gap
- What can be done to comply and protect your organisation
