What a week and what a thrill to be able to travel to the Gold Coast to be a part of and celebrate the 20th anniversary of the annual conference AusCERT2021 that was delivered across 4-days (11th to 14th May 2021) at The Star Gold Coast
The AusCERT conference is the longest-running cybersecurity conference in Australia and this year’s theme was “SOARing with Cyber”- Security Orchestration, Automation, and Response.
The ultimate goal of SOAR is to bring efficiency to SOC processes and improve incident response in the face of thousands of security alerts. People, processes and technologies all contribute to an efficient and effective incident response. AusCERT successfully delivered this message with excellent world-class tutorials and presentations delivered to us by speakers from around the globe!
It basically was a week of awesome introductions, catch ups and learnings….and what a buzz being able to re-connect in person with industry peers after the circumstances faced by everybody last year.
Whilst at a Cyber Assurance tutorial, a personal highlight for me was meeting Jacqui Loustau. Founder and Executive Manager of the AWSN – Australian Women in Security Network (AWSN) – an open network of people aiming to grow the number of women and female-identifying professionals in the cyber security community.
If you are passionate about Cyber Security then this annual event is a must, hope to see you next year!
