Hosted by the AISA NSW Branch, please join us for a face-to-face meeting and networking opportunity with two interactive presentations and discussions. The first presentation is a case study on the Ukrainian power grid cyber attack with guest speaker Mark Chatters who is the Enterprise Security Architect at Transport for NSW. In the second presentation, David Halfpenny who is the Principal Consultant in the Cyber Capability, Education and Training practice at CyberCX will discuss ways on how we can better approach security awareness.
Presentation 1 - Case Study: December 2015 Ukraine power grid cyber attack
On the 23rd December 2015, three Ukrainian electricity distribution companies were the victim of a co-ordinated, “first of its kind” cyber attack which left nearly a quarter of a million households without power for several hours. This presentation describes the attack, the tools, techniques and procedures used, and how it might have been prevented.
Presentation 2 - FUD for thought: Is security awareness really possible?
Crypto scams, ransomware, account takeover, invoice fraud - it’s a dangerous online world. There are simple things people can do to protect themselves, yet they don’t. Why not? In this presentation David will reflect on his experiences dealing with organisations and individuals in the cyber education space. In between cries of anguish and frustration, David will share some backroom speculation on how we can better approach security awareness. You won’t get any answers, but you’ll have some new questions to ponder!
Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions of the speakers and networking drinks with light refreshments will be served after the presentations.
