The Cybersecurity landscape with Tank Stream Labs

July 15, 2020

Increasingly, cyber security and cyber warfare are becoming front page, mainstream news. Every day people are hearing about cyber crimes, hacks, and cyber threats across our news outlets. 

The ever-evolving landscape of cyber security is seeing it now becoming more of a militaristic commodity with innocent bystanders aka businesses, getting caught in the crossfire. 

Join our expert panel as we discuss:

  • The current cyber threats: is it actually current or has it always been here? What's changed in the type of threats since 10 years ago?

  • The future of cyber security and cyber warfare in Australia and across the globe

  • How will this impact consumers, businesses, and startups? What can we do to protect ourselves?

Smart Communities/Cities

October 12, 2017

Today approx 54% of the world's population resides in urban cities and this is projected to lift to 66% by 2050, with the world's urban population expected to hit 6 billion people by 2045. This makes the movement towards sustainable communities and cities even more compelling. Underpinning this is the concept of a Smart City, described by the Smart Cities Council as " that has digital technology embedded across all city functions".

In a Smart City where connected transport, smart health, integrated smart grids are interconnected, security of the infrastructure and citizen privacy will largely determine whether the a city's Smart City strategy is successful or not.

Come listen to business leaders and technologists on the latest trends in Smart/Sustainable Cities and what measures need to be undertaken to protect it now and in the future.
