Event Overview


Enhancing Defences through Collaboration and Advancing Protection Methods

The importance of enhanced cyber security is making headlines as rising international tensions have reiterated the need for improved resilience across New Zealand. Security leaders have been told to strengthen their defences as attacks on networks and data continue to rise.

The Public Sector Network’s 2022 New Zealand Cyber Showcase will focus on how to mitigate risk and learn through collaboration. The government has highlighted the need for departments to work together to strengthen readiness. By sharing best practices, agencies can employ stronger cyber defence strategies and implement them throughout their organisation. They can educate their workforce on understanding the need for vigilance and how following company policies can help uplift resilience.
