As Australian enterprises increasingly prepare for a data-powered future in which artificial intelligence and the metaverse traverse hype into reality, security will prove a competitive force multiplier in building trust and customer loyalty.

On Wednesday, 24th July 2024, an elite group of Australia’s most successful technology, business and innovation rock stars will unite on stage to share timely insights on how to leverage emerging technologies to enhance CX and create new business opportunities – without compromising security, data and identity.

This by invitation conference will gather 120+ senior security, cyber, tech and business executives from Australia’s top industries at the Park Hyatt Hotel in Melbourne.

The MC of this special one-day event is Adam Spencer – math genius, sought-after media and innovation commentator. He will lead an outstanding conference program that features a ‘who’s who’ ensemble of technologists and C-level executives who are at the coalface of best practice security in the digital age.


Australia’s best and brightest will unite to deliver short, sharp and highly insightful presentations on the impact and opportunities of AI and emerging technologies on the security professional’s agenda. They will also participate in robust Q&A panel discussions that will challenge the status quo, with talking points including – but not limited to – the following:

  • Essentials to successfully plan for AI, machine learning and deep learning
  • The cyber security challenges CXOs need to consider
  • Ethical implications of AI – how to mitigate algorithmic bias
  • The skills required to support the emergence of AI in the workforce
  • AI and Automation: how to prepare your organisation for jobs that don’t exist yet
  • Where should investments be made to start and/or progress your AI journey?
  • ‘Industry 4.0’ and how AI is fueling its impact on the future workforce
  • Future Focus: Chief Information Officer, Chief Data Scientist or Chief AI Officer – who will lead the way?
  • 2030: the next wave of AI and how to navigate the new dawn of digital transformation




Events should engage audiences, inspire action and deliver measurable results. If you’ve settled for anything less, it’s time to raise your standards.

This special conference stands apart for its journalistic approach to acquiring first-class speakers; the compilation of world-class best use cases; and the provision of multi-sensory delegate experiences during networking breaks.

Our team of technology editors, journalists and conference producers bridge the divide – bringing innovation rock stars together with local tech AI legends and unsung heroes – while offering a rich and immersive experience during session intermissions. Essentially, this conference creates belief through experience.


While conference audiences vary in their preferences for content engagement, they share one important common criteria – the delivery of world-class information of the highest quality that can deliver measurable benefits for the organisation.
