With so many issues facing us – personally, professionally & from an organisational perspective, this forum will help you to navigate through these challenges & identify opportunities for development.
I am also really looking forward to hearing from participants about the challenges you currently face and exploring how your work is contributing to effecting positive change in our communities.
Never before has the security of the tangible world and the virtual worlds so intersected creating a complex and interdependent operating environment.
The PSG brings together world class experts who will talk about their experiences in dealing with uncertainty and volatility, and offering practical real world solutions.
I’m really proud to be an Ambassador of the 2021 PSG Conference. There has never been a more important time to participate.
The PSG Conference provides a great opportunity to broaden our network and to work together to achieve positive sustainable change through strategic risk management.
We acknowledge the Traditional Owners and Custodians of Country throughout Australia and their continuing connections to land, sea and communities. We pay our respects to them, their cultures and their Elders; past, present, emerging and those leading the way into the future. We also recognise Australia’s First Peoples’ enduring contribution to Australia’s national security.
We truly believe that Diversity powers our strength – with people looking at the same problem from different perspectives, a better solution can be achieved.
What happens when individuals conduct malicious acts inside organizations? What processes do they go through and what interventions can be taken from a human perspective? We will take a look into the mind of an ‘insider’ and provide insights into comprehensive programmes to address insider threats in organizations. Elsine will focus on the critical pathway approach (Shaw & Sellers) and will use case studies to take you along on their paths to derailment.
The panel will be moderated by Jason Brown, National Security Director, Thales
The Australian Defence Force is a relatively small and boutique force yet it seems to be the Federal Government’s instrument of choice for crises ranging from fires, floods, pandemics and plagues. That seems to have worked fine while these challenges have presented consecutively. Yet should they emerge concurrently the system likely will collapse. That prospect is all the more likely thanks to overlapping challenges relating to the environment, great power contestation and governance issues. In essence, looming environmental catastrophe (plagues, pestilence, floods, fires and existential storm and sea level threats), combined with a spectrum of governance challenges (terrorism, transnational criminal syndicates and a break down in law and order), along with looming great power contestation present a conundrum bigger than one government agency. It’s time for building resilience through enhanced resourcing of the nation’s instrumentalities responsible for responding to a crisis. This involves development of an Australian Universal Scheme for National and Community Service (AUSNACS) to better support the state based police, emergency and fire services, para-medical services, national parks, federal police and the three armed services of the ADF. The future looks set for greater challenges than we have experienced in decades. A more resilient posture is required, with the long term interests of the nation, and the region, in mind.
Artificial Intelligence generates a lot of hype, but is it warranted? As AI has morphed into a marketing buzzword rather than a technical term, it is easy to get overwhelmed when presented with products that are touted for their innovative and transformational applications of AI. This presentation is based on the speaker’s Doctorate research on Adversarial Machine Learning, and seeks to cut through the misinformation and hype that surrounds AI, and discuss can AI can also be ‘hacked’. The talk will arm audience members with the tools to interrogate AI products through demystifying what AI is (and what it isn’t), the factors that impact successful integration of AI into a capability or organisation, and questions to ask when considering the application of AI to Defence and national security contexts.
Information security continues to become more complex and specialised. The days of the lone defender able to heroically defend their organisation from all malicious actors are long gone if they were ever there. Multidisciplinary teams that bring together diverse and complementary talents to defend their organisations in an increasingly difficult threat environment are the best cyber defence. Effective cyber security leaders need to be the ‘synthesising professional’ able to knit teams together. This talk will focus on techniques, tactics and strategies that organisational leadership can use to reduce cyber risk.
