Launch of Australia’s Cyber Security Sector Competitiveness Plan 2019

In February, the NSW Node hosted the launch of Australia's Cyber Security Sector Competitiveness Plan and fireside chat with James Turner, CISO Lens founder.

The NSW Cyber Security Innovation Node was delighted to host AustCyber’s CEO, Michelle Price and James Turner, Founder of CISO Lens, for a fireside chat on the CISO Lens Benchmark 2019 and Australia’s Cyber Security Sector Competitiveness Plan. 

CISO Lens is a forum for Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) of large Australian and New Zealand organisations. The CISO Lens Benchmark 2019 aims to enable evidence-based decision making around strategy and resource allocation and is founded on benchmarking completed by Mr Turner with cyber security executives to assess how their organisations respond to cyber risks.

Australia’s Cyber Security Sector Competitiveness Plan draws on extensive industry consultation and research to provide a picture of the global outlook, challenges, opportunities and priority actions needed to grow a vibrant and globally competitive cyber security sector that enhances Australia’s future economic growth. The 2019 update was authored by AustCyber who also released the original Plan in 2017 and an update last year.

Michelle and James traversed a range of topics including:

CISO Lens Benchmark 2019
The benchmark survey and how it was conducted
The role of the CISO and security teams
Cyber security budgeting through different lenses
How to use the information within the Benchmark to help ensure your organisation is putting forward a cyber security posture commensurate to the value you deliver
How the results of the Benchmark will improve cyber security governance within organisations, as well as cyber resilience across the Australian and New Zealand economies
