The move away from physical assets and towards cloud-based infrastructure is more significant than ever and this presentation explores a future world that is more digital and connected, and the impact of smart infrastructure, and technology.
The risk of cyber attacks on Australia’s critical infrastructure is an increasing concern for the industry as asset breaches can have significant consequences including service disruption, financial loss, safety and national security.
With cloud-based infrastructure becoming indispensable to the functioning of society, this panel will explore how we need to have strong systems and processes in place to ensure our networks are secure and what this looks like moving forward.
