AusCERT2015: Smarten up

AusCERT is hosting AusCERT2015, the 14th annual AusCERT Information Security Conference from 1st-5th June 2015 at the RACV Royal Pines Resort on Queensland's Gold Coast, Australia.

This year’s conference theme explores how we need to smarten up to manage information security risks better. We need to “smarten up” by focusing on information security essentials; by taking advantage of threat intelligence to improve our security posture; and by adapting and applying smarter ways to prevent, detect and respond to information security risks.

Come to AusCERT2015 to hear a great line up of talented speakers talk about information security, network with your peers and smarten up!
