AHECS Cybersecurity Summit
02-04 NOVEMBER 2020
The Inaugural 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 will be held as a hybrid online event on 02-04 November 2020 with webinars leading up to the Summit. Village locations will be available in key capital cities and virtually to allow for face to face interaction and connection into the virtual event. Good practice following COVID-19 health advice will be observed leading up to and during the event, and if social distancing remains in place the event will transition to a fully online event in a seamless manner.
The theme for this foundational summit is “Bridging the Gap”. This reflects 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.
