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 Friday, 10th March 2023, 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:

  • Ground Zero – how AI and smart data analytics are building true zero-trust environments
  • Security by Stealth – how data analytics and AI-powered inoculation can boost cyber resiliency and help protect against data breaches
  • Beyond Hybrid – the emerging risks and security hot spots to watch in a ‘connected from anywhere’ workforce
  • Future-Ready CISO – the essentials to creating a resilient-ready, recovery-ready environment
  • Cyber Reset – how to transform people, processes and technology into frontline defence forces
  • Citizen Cloud – how to enhance trust in a truly digital, cloud-enabled customer journey
  • Culture Club – the success strategies that instil data and security into the corporate DNA
  • On and Off – the latest developments combating ransomware and boosting data resiliency both
  • on-premises and in the cloud
  • The Next Big Thing – how AI and the metaverse will likely impact the future of security and cyber resilience
