Safety in numbers: Creating collaborative security solutions

Sponsored by: Telstra

Focused on:

  • Cyber Security
  • Security Threats

Date: 20 November


Time: 9:30AM UK

From Wannacry to Petya, the past year has seen more serious cyber security threats to organisations than ever before. Our research has shown that almost 60% of businesses had detected security incidents at least on a monthly basis.*

What has become abundantly clear from recent attacks is that no organisation can do this alone. The world of cyber security is a team sport and requires the collaboration of government, enterprises and the community to develop solutions to help build resilience, cyber security and cyber safety.

The idea of the security community sharing ideas and capability is not new. People have been talking about it for years. What is encouraging is that new, community based approaches to security are now gaining traction. And with new innovations in managed security and programmable networks, the importance of information and best practice sharing are critical.

Join Neil Campbell, Director of Security, Telstra, as we discuss collaborative initiatives to innovate to stay ahead of today’s security threats
