Lessons Learned - improving cyber security culture and practice

The rapid spread of the ‘WannaCry’ ransomware attack in May underlined the vital need for public sector managers to broaden their IT know-how and build a robust in-house cyber security capability. For while our tech-savvy citizens demand ever greater digital access, a growing number of high-profile incidents show that delivering online services can be fraught with data security and privacy perils.

As digital engagement gathers momentum across Victoria’s public sector, this vital event provides a timely examination of how our cyber security capabilities are keeping pace – and occasionally falling down.

This forum will look at a number of real-world case studies – including lessons from the 2016 Census with the Australian Bureau of Statistics’ Chief Statistician, David Kalisch.

Be part of a critical conversation on securing government information and ensuring service continuity – as the public sector strives to keep up with the digital revolution.
