Lunchtime Leadership series kicks off

Representatives from Optus and the University of Sydney inaugural speakers

On Tuesday 24 July the NSW Cyber Security Innovation Node, in partnership with the Sydney JCSC held the inaugural Lunchtime Leadership Series event. The lunchtime format was designed to give attendees brief, fresh insights into cyber security opportunities that businesses and governments in NSW are facing. This event was the first in a series of monthly events the Node is planning over the next year.

The approximately 25-person audience was treated to a talk by Stuart Mort, CTO, Cyber & ICT Solutions at Optus and Dr. Suranga Seneviratne, Lecturer in Cyber Security, School of Computer Science at the University of Sydney. Stuart spoke about whether or not security people are a security problem and what needs to be done within the business to ensure that cyber is seen as both a risk and also an enabler. Suranga presented a current research project on extracting network intelligence in the era of end-to-end encryption. The attendees were incredibly engaged with both topics with a 25 minute Q&A session ensuing after the talks that further explored the issues that had been raised.

The key takeaway across both talks was the need for cyber to continue to be demystified in order to continue building secure-by-design cyber resiliency.
