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!

Jazz Twemlow to MC AusCERT2015

You might know the British comic from ABC2’s "The Roast”. Jazz will MC at AusCERT2015, including opening the conference each day, MCing the Gala Dinner and hosting the Speed Debate. Jazz looks forward to meeting and engaging with you at the conference.

More about Jazz Twemlow:

The combined beard, comedian and dishevelled twitter curmudgeon known as Jazz first started stand-up in 2003 in Manchester and was getting paid work after 4 months, stopped for a while to pursue a Masters of Research in William Blake, before flying to Tokyo in 2010 where he opened a comedy room with British comic and friend, Trevor Ferdy.

Jazz arrived in Sydney in 2011 and quickly established himself as the most successful unheard of comedian you’ve never met. After 6 months in Australia he was writing and performing on A Rational Fear (FBI Radio, Radio National), and subsequently landed a job working on ABC2’s "The Roast". He’s performed at six comedy festivals, written for TEDx and I F*****g Love Science Live, and now has his own TV column in The Guardian where he insults terrible things for money.

More recently, Jazz’ stand-up was listed in The Guardian as some of the best in Climate Science Comedy, where he was listed along side the likes of John Oliver, Ali G, David Mitchell, and The Onion.

Jazz is politically disgruntled, highly caffeinated, a huge fan of William Blake, a logical fanatic, and a fan of sensory deprivation tanks and Xbox RPGs. He also podcasts weekly, dissecting current affairs and observational topics in the equivalent of an aural frown. His podcast was listed by iTunes in their New and Noteworthy section after 3 episodes.
