Bringing together world leading experts, this one-day workshop will cover an overview of what’s happening out there and provide the knowledge and frameworks to help you execute your obligations. The University of Queensland Australian Leadership Cybersecurity Workshop will cover the most significant and wide-spread threats facing IT today, with real-world examples and responses illustrating steps and precautions you can take to keep your enterprise on top of current and emerging threats. Cyber-security is NOT just a technology question. It is a cross-functional issue that must be addressed at the CEO/Board level and made a part of critical business decisions.

What Will You Experience?

A Live Demonstration of how a Skilled Hacker Penetrates an Enterprise. Witness technical demonstrations of what an attack actually looks like and how easy it is to move around inside an organisation and steal data.
Observe how a hacker can:
• Open Source Research (how to find out about your target using free resources)
• Finding credentials for sale on the Dark Web
• Phishing/Spoofing to get into the network
• Escalating through Access Privileges
• Moving Laterally throughout a computer network
• Data Identification
• Data Exfiltration.

Along with each of these steps you will also gain insight in to how to detect such activity from the defender’s point of view. Plus, with the experts, work through a Risk Management Framework which seeks to optimize the limited resources of every enterprise has for cyber security. The reality is that Enterprise leaders shape their cyber opportunities and risks. You must balance openness, innovation, privacy, security & safety down to data assets, people and process level.


This workshop will be presented by two world renowned experts. Colonel Jeff Arsenault, the former head of the “ethical hacking team” of the US National Security Agency, and Dr Paul Twomey, former CEO of both ICANN, the body responsible for coordinating the global Internet, and the Australian National Office for the Information Economy.
