For all our readers down-under, I'm delighted to announce that I will be giving a keynote at the CSO Perspectives Roadshow in March, calling in on the Australian cities of Sydney and Melbourne.
The roadshow's organisers, promise that you will learn about security, privacy, influence and connected devices from over 35 industry speakers including Asciano, SA Attorney General’s Department, BlueScope Steel, WA Police, CXO Advisory and Deutsche Bank.
My keynote presentation is entitled "The rise of malware", and here is the blurb to whet your appetite:
From back bedrooms to boardrooms, Graham Cluley describes how viruses and trojan horses turned from a schoolboy prank into a threat which could steal secrets from governments, disrupt nuclear facilities in Iran, and even help secret agents assassinate their opponents.
Graham Cluley draws on his 25 year history in the anti-virus industry to explain who the malware authors are, how the nature of the attacks are changing, and the steps that organisations need to take to prevent themselves from becoming the next victim.
Personally I can't wait to hear what this Cluley fellow has to say...
Other keynote speakers include Robert Lentz, the US Department of Defense's former CISO. Robert is now President of Cyber Security Strategies for the next US president (whoever he or she might be).
As if all this weren't tempting enough, you can earn up to 7 CPE credits as you network with your peers. I even hear that you will be able to hang out with me and Robert at an exclusive evening roundtable session.
So, what are you waiting for?
Spaces are strictly limited, so if you think you will be able to attend the event in Sydney on March 15th or the one in Melbourne on March 22nd, please reserve your seat now.
I look forward to meeting some of you in March.
And if you're not going to be able to make it, you can check out where else I will be speaking in the coming months on my public speaking page. Cheers!
