What’s In Store for 2024

In the field of cyber security, Western Australia is at a crossroads. After several years of challenging results when it comes to the state’s cyber protection, the government has taken active steps to mitigate the dangers and set the state up for ongoing threats and challenges. This includes a new state-wide cyber security policy that has just undergone its first review and proposed legislation for new and bespoke privacy measures.

How will these actions make a tangible difference?

Join us at Public Sector Network’s inaugural Cyber WA Showcase 2024 to gain valuable insights into how these new policies and proposed legislations affect you, and why they matter to all residents of WA.

Taking place at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre, we will be bringing together 100+ attendees who will have the opportunity to listen to industry leaders from state and local government agencies and academic institutions., as they provide in-depth insights into:

  • The government’s new cyber security policy
  • The proposed new privacy legislation
  • The ins and outs of data sharing and how it affects cyber security
  • How the state’s cyber scope is likely to change with all these new measures
  • How business transformation impacts cyber security and the emergence of modern technologies

Don’t miss your opportunity to explore real-life case studies that will enhance your understanding of improving cyber security on a national scale.
