Cyber Panel Discussion: Essential Eight

Speakers Rachael Falk, Ross Lettau , Martin Buckland and Tom Uren

As the cost of cyber-attacks rockets to eyewatering levels and the risks to government and business increase, why do cyber defenders find it so hard to implement comprehensive mitigation strategies? Even government departments find it difficult to implement the Australian Cyber Security Centre’s Essential Eight Strategies, the top four of which have been mandated since June 2014.     

ASPI is pleased to invite you to a challenging discussion exploring why it is so difficult to implement essential cyber security mitigation strategies.

The panel discussion will be followed by a drinks and canapes reception.
