ASPI's International Cyber Policy Centre is delighted to invite you to the virtual launch of our latest report, 'Working smarter, not harder: Leveraging government procurement to improve cybersecurity and supply chains', with the Minister for Industry, Science and Technology, the Hon Karen Andrews MP.

The report, Working smarter, not harder looks at how Australian governments - as the nation's largest spenders on ICT - can maximise the leverage that market power gives them to drive improved cybersecurity, more secure supply chains, and build local industry.

The launch by the Minister will be followed by a panel discussion and Q&A. Joining the panel will be:

  •  Rajiv Shah, Report Author, ASPI Fellow
  •  Aidan Tudehope, Managing Director & Co-Founder, Macquarie Government
