Melbourne, November 15 - 17

Australian Cyber Conference 2021

The Australian Information Security Association (AISA) is the premier industry body for information security professionals in Australia. As a nationally recognised not-for-profit organisation, AISA champions the development of a robust information security sector by building the capacity of professionals in Australia and advancing the cyber security and safety of the Australian public, as well as businesses and government.

AISA prides itself on the annual national conference, the 13th being held in Melbourne from November 15 – 17

Join us in November as we bring together local and global thought leaders and industry experts in once place to effect change.

Who attends?

The Australian Cyber Conference 2021 will  provide business leaders with insights and best practices taught by the industry’s top experts through keynotes, panel sessions and live demonstrations. Attending the conference will enable you to  network with these practitioners to help you better understand and manage current threats, as well as identify and prepare to meet emerging challenges. An interactive format of workshops, plenary sessions and the opportunity to network with expert practitioners in the field of cyber security is a must for all organisations in the current business environment.

AISA invites all individuals to participate in the Australian Cyber Conference 2021.

The 2019 conference comprised over 3600 individuals across Australia and 2021 is projected to grow considerably. Delegates range from company directors and managers to lawyers, risk professionals, software architects, and technical security specialists. They come from a broad range of industries from education to finance, government, healthcare, manufacturing, mining, transportation, and utilities.

AISA’s focus groups, conferences, presentations, and networking events, cater to a large range of specialisations.

The diverse nature of our audience enables a variety of perspectives and subjects for discussion at each of our meetings. Most importantly, our conference helps to independently promote awareness and understanding of cyber security issues in the community.

Security events present opportunities to learn, share knowledge and network. As a security event organiser, we believe these events should represent a safe, enjoyable and inclusive environment for all people, irrespective of gender, race, ethnicity, age, sexuality, religion, disability, socio-economic background, experience, size, shape and so on. No one should be subject to any harassment, bullying or abuse. Any such behaviour will not be tolerated and we will take such action as we deem necessary to ensure it does not reoccur.  This may include immediate removal from an event and a prohibition from attending future events. This Code of Conduct explains exactly what we mean by unacceptable behaviour and it outlines the steps someone subjected to such behaviour at an event can take to report it.
