AHECS Inaugural Cybersecurity Summit

The AHECS Cybersecurity Summit is a conference developed by the sector, for the sector with a focus on the Higher Education and Research Cybersecurity, Identity Management and Privacy Community.
The Summit was held as a hybrid online event on 02-04 November 2020 with webinars leading up to the Summit. Village locations were developed in key capital cities and due to COVID-19 transitioned to online within the AHECS Summit Virtual Venue.
The theme for this foundational summit was “Bridging the Gap”. This reflected the shifts that must occur in addressing the disparity in cyber maturity and impacts of COVID-19 across the Higher Education and Research sector against the increasing technical capabilities, reach and sophistication of cyber-attacks.
