Cyber Breach Simulation Australia - CyBSA 2019

The Circle, in partnership with the Optus Macquarie University Cyber Security Hub, invites your organisation to participate a unique Forum on Cyber Security on Thursday 7 November in Sydney – one of the first of its kind in Australia. The Forum will involve a Cyber Breach Simulation, followed by a panel luncheon featuring industry leaders in cyber from APRA, Optus, Skylight Cyber, and La Trobe Uni.

During the Cyber Attack Simulation, taking place in the morning, your Crisis Management Team will play four characters in the Information Security Department of a fictional organisation, competing against other teams by managing the cyber breach. Teams will receive feedback from a group of expert observers, including APRA representatives. The winning team will be announced at the lunch and will be invited to attend a private C-level dinner.
