Cyber Security Readiness for Government & Defence Contracting [Darwin]

February 24 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm UTC+9.5


This is a repeat of the same workshop in early February. With over $4 billion lost to cybercrime each year in Australia, it is now a major factor in the selection of contractors for Territory, Commonwealth and Defence work. And while a solid “Essential 8” framework has been promoted by government, how can a small business ensure that they are ready?

In this 2-hour workshop you will learn about:

1. The requirements for working with Defence, NT Government and outsourced Primes

2. The various compliance frameworks, inclulding ASD Essential 8, ASD Top 4, CREST 5, ISO2700 family, and best practices in general

3. The most common ways the bad guys get in, and what can stop them

4. Coming up with a plan to get cyber ready, and how you can access grants and subsidised assistance


Whilst there are no specific on-device activities, power and free secure WIFI are availble for use


This workshop is designed for small business owners who are planning to tender for local, Territory, Commonwealth and Defence work directly, or via Prime Contractors. This is also a useful briefing for those who are seeking to be Cyber Security Insurance compliant in their businesses.


Your host is Gary Leigh from Darwin’s Green Hat Cyber Security. Gary believes in bringing security, strategy and information security together. He has worked with some of the Territory’s largest IT providers, collaborates with the Charles Darwin University’s Cybersecurity research initiatives and is an accredited ASBAS Digital Solutions advisor.
