Australian Cyber Week 2020 commences today!

Cyber Week provides opportunities for Australian cyber security and related organisations to showcase their capabilities and network with peers, potential investors and customers. It also provides a great way for cyber curious individuals and organisations to better understand what cyber security can do and mean for them. 

This week, we have 20+ online and (COVID-safe) in-person events and activities being held from 26-30 October – spanning the full breadth of the cyber security landscape for those within the sector, but also well beyond.  

Whether you’re a student, CEO, investor, practitioner, teacher, graduate, innovator, mentor, board member, inventor, journalist, researcher, salesperson, entrepreneur … there will be at least one, if not an entire week’s worth of activities, that will appeal.  

We’re also excited to debut our brand-new virtual conference platform. It’s a 3D experience that we believe is unique to our sector and the way online events are being delivered. Watch the video above for a sneak peak of our ‘circuit board city’!
