Sydney Day Month: Meeting Name
TWO Sessions: ‘Introducing the 4 R’s of online safety: About the Office of the eSafety Commissioner’ & Australia’s Privacy Amendment (Notifiable Data Breaches) Act 2017...

Two unmissable professional development presentations.

Presentation 1: ‘Introducing the 4 R’s of online safety: About the Office of the eSafety Commissioner’, with Toby Dagg, leader of the eSafety Commissioner's team.

Online safety, says the eSafety Commissioner, is an important corollary to security. Toby Dagg gives an overview of how the Office of the eSafety Commissioner works to keep all Australians safer online, and poses the question: How might the safety and security communities work together to amplify and scale our messages?  

Toby Dagg leads the eSafety Commissioner’s team dedicated to helping disrupt the dark economy of online child sexual exploitation, CyberReport. He also heads up the Commissioner’s unit responsible for handling reports about serious cyberbullying material targeting Australian children. 
After serving eight years with NSW Police, mostly in criminal investigation as a Detective, Toby spent three years with NSW Justice in youth policy. In 2013, he joined the illegal online content team, combining his passion for child protection with technical and investigation expertise. He holds degrees in global security studies and politics, and is completing a Juris Doctor law degree through the University of Technology, Sydney.

Presentation 2:  Australia’s Privacy Amendment (Notifiable Data Breaches) Act 2017 – Challenges & Opportunities – a practitioners’ perspective, with Marco Figueroa (CISO NSW Department of Finance, Services and Innovation).

Marco Figueroa is the Chief Information Security Officer of the NSW Department of Finance, Services and Innovation. Marco is passionate to add value to organisations pursuing opportunities in business transformation programs by developing, implementing and accelerating the speed of secure and resilient systems through innovation, best practice, leadership and end state vision. 

The focus of Marco’s presentation is to put into perspective the need for incident monitoring, detection, response, and recovery capabilities. This expanded concept of cyber resilience is the ability to prepare for, respond to and recover from cyber incidents and disruption. A data breach is defined as an incident in which personal identifiable information held by an agency or organisation is lost or subjected to unauthorised access, modification, disclosure or other misuse or interference.

Australia’s Privacy Amendment (Notifiable Data Breaches) Act 2017 marks a milestone for information security legislation. Australia is not the first country to introduce strict breach notification laws, nor is it likely to be the last. To date, approximately 90 countries have introduced legislation or have existing laws for breach notification with varying degrees of strictness, enforcement and penalties. And yet data breaches still go undetected and unreported.

Information security practitioners are encourage to attend this session to understand how organisations can use this new legislation and mandatory requirement to mitigate organisational risk.
