Focus of the symposium

The key activity of this symposium is to facilitate industry-academia networking, in particular the regional SMEs.

The symposium will bring the stakeholders from governments, industry and academia together to create a forum for exchanging innovative research ideas, state-of-the-art, and highlight activities that deal with modern security threats.

One main feature of the symposium is to involve regional SMEs in the discussion of the outcomes of a survey on the cyber security awareness and digital forensic readiness of 26 SMEs in this region conducted by the Cyber Security Group at Charles Sturt University. This is intended to raise the regional SMEs’ awareness of security threats to their business and to advise them on the possible preventive and mitigation measures they can put in place.

Location: International Hotel, Wagga Wagga
