NSW Government Cyber Showcase 2021

Providing secure, trusted and resilient services

22 November 2021

Royal Randwick, Sydney and Online

Event Overview

With the ongoing digital transformation of the NSW Government, cyber threats are not only changing but are becoming increasingly complex.

Maintaining and enhancing cybersecurity capabilities is paramount,
to safeguard information, assets, services, and citizens. The key focus now is to enhance whole-of-government cybersecurity capabilities and standards, boosting cyber incident response coordination, and overseeing the development of strategic cyber policy positions.

Join us at the NSW Government Cyber Showcase to understand how to build stronger cyber resilience across the whole of government,
supporting economic growth, prosperity, and efficiency.

The NSW Government Cyber Showcase will share case studies of how your peers provide secure, trusted, and resilient services in an ever-changing and developing environment.
