2023 Overview

Espionage and foreign interference, terrorism and cyber – three ongoing major threats we face to Australia’s national security leading into 2024.

With potential for attacks being compounded by rapidly evolving technologies, in order to protect our national interests, citizens, and infrastructure, we need to actively gain a front foot in the evolving realm of cyber security, intelligence capabilities and protecting critical infrastructure.

How can we achieve this? To address these upcoming challenges and more, 9th Annual Australian Security Summit (AuSEC) we delve into the integration of the latest strategies, technologies, and innovations for the continued success of protecting the nation and delivering robust national security.
