July 11, 2011 - PRLog -- Australia’s increasing reliance on online and cloud computing have forced government departments to tighten the nation’s cyber security. The Cyber Security for Government 2011 event, to be held on the 25-26th October in Sydney, thus gathers key departments from the public sector to discuss their strategies to mitigate cyber crime.

Dr. Robyn Torok from the Centre of Policing, Intelligence and Counter-Terrorism, and a key speaker at the event, said that the event comes at a time when the actors in cyber space are increasingly blurred. She notes that the government has a significant role in protecting the nation’s digital infrastructure and information.

“Government departments not only have a responsibility for their own digital infrastructures, but they also need to provide adequate support for [the] private industry to ensure that private networks and infrastructures are secure,” said Dr. Robyn Torok.

The Cyber Security for Government 2011 also features representatives from the United States – long seen as the leader in this field. Mary Edwards, the Director of the National Cyber Security Division from the Department of Homeland Security; and Paul de Souza, founder of the Cyber Security Forum Initiative, are both keynote speakers who will present practical strategies to combat cyber terrorism at the event..

As Australia transitions into a digital economy, the two day conference will deal with the challenges government departments face, including mitigating cyber crime, building a secure culture in the workplace and how government departments can improve their online management systems.
