Tech in Gov
The annual meeting-of-the-minds for 1000’s of government technology leaders across Australia
Tech in Gov is Australia’s largest and longest-running annual ICT in government event. It combines a high-level conference with a large scale exhibition, bringing together senior public and private sector IT experts to learn, network and source ICT solutions for the ongoing digital transformation within government.
This two day conference and exhibition brings together ICT leaders and department heads from Federal and State Government. Delegates attend to learn, network and source ICT solutions that will play an integral part in ongoing public sector ICT modernisation.
The event focuses on ICT issues that matter most to government:
- Delivering streamlined services 24×7 in an “on demand and open” society
- Enabling the strategic use of ICT to deliver on policy and effective governance
- Engaging openly to build and leverage knowledge and foster collaboration

This event is consistently growing year on year, with the 2019 edition consisting of two co-located events: Identity Expo and Cyber Security in Government.
When the Dyn DDoS attack occurred in 2016, it quickly became apparent that the world had entered an alarming new era of internet vulnerability. Which is why the public and private sectors have a shared duty and responsibility for maintaining our country’s security online, defending individual and national interests in cyberspace, in order to protect businesses and individuals from cyber attack.
Ensuring that Australia maintains a secure cyberspace builds trust and confidence for individuals, business and the public sector to do business, share information and innovate online. The Tech in Gov Cyber Security congress brings together leading thinkers from public and private sectors from across the country and around the globe to share insight into the changing landscape of cyber risk.
Digital identity has fast become one of the most significant technology trends on the planet, so much so that almost every country’s public and private sectors are investing significant time and resources into developing the capabilities to verify identity across a wide range of online transaction services.
Yet in this new era of Internet vulnerability, protecting privacy and personal information is paramount, which is why the government and the private sector need to collaborate. The Identity congress brings together public and private sector innovators and leading thinkers to share insight into how they are working within Australia’s National Identity Security Strategy to guide identity security initiatives in key areas, such as maintaining the security of identity documents, authentication standards, biometric interoperability and integrity of identity data holdings, as well as procedures for document verification.
