Following the success of the first CSARN Australia Cyber and Information Security Event held on August 26th in Adelaide, this event was repeated on November 5th at Parliament House in Brisbane.
We were once again joined by guest speakers from ASIO’s Business Liaison Unit (ASIO BLU) and the Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT) Australia who provided attendees with information surrounding possible threats to cyber and information security.
Each presentation provided attendees with information about the potential cyber threats to business as well as a number of resources available to both business and government to increase their resilience should such an event occur.
These presentations were follow by a period of discussion where attendees asked questions both of the speakers and each other, and were given the opportunity to share their personal expertise on the area of cyber and information security.
ASIO's Business Liaison Unit provides a public interface between the Australian Intelligence Community and Australian business. The BLU is also available to Australian government agencies. The BLUs role is to;
- provide credible intelligence backed reporting at the 'For Official Use Only' level
- administer a secure website on a free subscription basis
- inform the private sector about national security threats affecting their interest
For further information:
CERT Australia (the CERT) is the national computer emergency response team and is the point of contact in Government for cyber security issues affecting major Australian Businesses.
The CERT provides advice and support on cyber threats and vulnerabilities to the owners and operators of Australia’s critical infrastructure and other systems of national interest. A compromise of these systems could result in significant impacts on Australia’s economic prosperity, social wellbeing, national defence and security. For further information:
Thank you once again for your support of this event and we look forward to seeing you at future CSARN events.
