In 2017 we united and stood together on infosec threats by trying new models for sharing information and collaborating between sectors. In 2018 we must build resilience by continuing to work together. We’ll be using new found ways to share threat intelligence and collaborate to devise innovative ways to build cyber security resilience within our workplaces and for the wider community.
Will a new technology solution emerge, such as advanced machine learning to defend against unknown unknowns? Or perhaps we’ll find a new way of looking at an old problem, such as blocking known threats. Maybe we’ll even solve the problem of building resilience in modern environments where traditional borders no longer exist, such as extended work forces using BYOD.
AusCERT2018 will explore these questions with you through world-class speakers, presentations and tutorials.
AusCERT is a leading Cyber Emergency Response Team (CERT) for Australia and provides information security advice to its members, including the higher education sector. We are a single point of contact for dealing with cyber security incidents affecting or involving member networks.
As a not-for-profit security group based at The University of Queensland, AusCERT helps members prevent, detect, respond to and mitigate cyber and Internet based attacks.
Formed in 1993, AusCERT is one of the oldest CERTs in the world and was the first in Australia to operate as the national CERT, which it did until 2010.
AusCERT monitors and evaluates global cyber network threats and vulnerabilities, and remains on-call for members after hours. We publish the Security Bulletin Service, drawing on material from a variety of sources, with recommended prevention and mitigation strategies.
AusCERT’s Incident Management Service can be an effective way to halt an ongoing cyber attack or, provide practical advice to assist in responding to and recovering from an attack.
The University of Queensland (UQ) is one of Australia’s premier learning and research institutions. UQ is renowned nationally and internationally for the quality of its teaching and research, ranking in the top 100 universities globally. Within the University, AusCERT is part of Information Technology Services (ITS).
