Detecting, deterring and responding to cyber threats is becoming more crucial than ever to Australia’s national security, industrial competitiveness and economic prosperity. What are the micro and macro costs of cybercrime that leaders should consider when evaluating risks? What types of cyber threats and adversaries are impacting business and government the most, and how might this change over the next two years? Which industries and government bodies are making the most progress in cyber security? To what extent is there a cyber security skills shortage across the nation? How are governments and businesses collaborating to strengthen cyber security awareness and action?
Gaining the trust and respect of important stakeholders through effective leadership is vital to preventing and mitigating cyber threats. What skills and mindsets are enabling executives to grow and succeed as leading contributors to cyber security? How are leaders shaping and meeting the cyber security expectations of CEOs, boards and other stakeholders? What differentiates best practice from compliance when it comes to educating employees, customers, investors and the general public about cyber security breaches and protocols?
An ongoing mastery of the double-edged nature of technology and data – sources of both cyber risk and resolution – is key to adaptive cyber security. What processes are keeping leaders up-to-date with the security of their systems and information? How are leaders mitigating the risks within their ICT supply chains? What kinds of technologies are currently the most reliable for data protection? What security challenges could emerge alongside developments in technologies such as the Internet of Things, behavioural analytics, augmented and virtual reality, artificial intelligence and autonomous machines?
As businesses and governments embrace an innovation culture, strong cyber security can improve the resilience of innovative business models and the effectiveness of digital strategies. How are leaders communicating the relationship between cyber security and innovation in order to foster an appreciation of both priorities among internal stakeholders? In what ways can cyber security risk analysis inform approaches to new and innovative digital ventures? Is there a boom in cyber security solutions? What tactics can secure and maintain the research and development needed for ongoing innovation in cyber security?
Over the past three decades, cyber security has transitioned from a problem entrusted to the IT department into a major governance issue for regulators, governments, boards and senior management. In light of regulatory changes, data breach reporting requirements, and rising public scrutiny, how are organisations realigning their communication and corporate structures to take cyber security seriously? What factors are informing decisions about whether to avoid, accept, mitigate or insure certain cyber risks? How can management foster a culture in which reporting incidents and raising security concerns is to be rewarded, not feared?
From detection to defence to incident management, ensuring dynamic and well-informed cyber security strategy at all stages of malicious activity can significantly reduce the scope and severity of damage. What are the true markers of a proactive – rather than reactive – approach to cyber security? What methods can help secure the approval of management to obtain the resources needed to implement robust cyber security strategy? What kinds of preparation and response strategies can reduce the financial, legal and reputational costs of a cyber attack? How are leaders keeping their cyber security strategy relevant in the wake of new threats, solutions, and lessons learnt internally or from security breaches disclosed by other organisations?
As connectivity becomes ever more intricate and pervasive, cyber adversaries are expected to strike with new heights of scale and sophistication. What cyber threats could emerge over the next three to five years? How will Australian organisations foster the talent and infrastructure to deal with complex new forms of cybercrime and cyber espionage? How might the attitudes of governments, businesses and the Australian public evolve towards issues such as hacktivism, data privacy and data monetisation? How will leaders manage the moral implications of their data and technology usage in order to create a climate of trust?
