With Australia already under high profile attack, will the AI tidal wave scale the threats and risk in 2024?

Organisations must chase digital growth and agility for their dispersed workforce, while guaranteeing verification, compliance, and trust.

To reach these goals, we must support our national CISO heroes, improve risk culture, protect the data, and ensure that Cyber leadership comes from the top.

Security leaders have the opportunity, attention, and funding, but operating at 100%, many will struggle to find the talent to fix everything.

ADAPT Security Edge brings a powerful agenda of experience and experts, codifying research and lessons learned to give our local security leaders practical ways to improve security posture, minimise risks and deliver in their ever-challenging roles.
