Bundaberg business owners are invited to learn about data security and how to protect against cyber threats as the ACS technology roadshow comes to town.
ACS is the professional association for Australia's technology sector, its members work across business, education, government, and the community delivering the digital services essential to the nation’s prosperity and security.
Stopping in the Bundaberg Region on 30 March, community members, especially those in business, are invited to attend.
ACS’ technology roadshow will cover the importance of cyber security for business, along with the changed landscape business owners in all industries must now navigate with the recent changes to the Privacy Act following year’s Medibank and Optus breaches.
Held in partnership with Cryptoloc ACS’ technology roadshow will feature leaders in the field including Cryptoloc founder Jamie Wilson.
Brisbane based Cryptoloc was founded by Jamie a decade ago and has since gone on to become one of the world’s most innovative encryption technology companies.
“Last year’s privacy breaches put the spotlight on cybersecurity,” Jamie said.
“However, over the past few years we’ve seen some of the world’s biggest shipping and logistic companies paralysed by ransomware and small businesses and their customers falling prey to phishing attacks and scammers.
“With regulators and consumers now demanding higher levels of cybersecurity and the importance of technology to regional industries and supply chains, this roadshow is going to give businesses owners and managers some valuable advice on securing their systems.”
Following Jamie’s presentation, ACS Skills Advisor Luisa Grant will outline the Cyber Security Traineeship Pilot and how ACS has been working with Industry to declare the Certificate IV in Cyber Security as a Traineeship in Queensland, helping to address the regional tech talent shortfall.
ACS Queensland Branch Chair Beau Tydd said they were looking forward to hitting the road and visiting regional areas like Bundaberg.
“The cybersecurity roadshow builds on last year’s successful regional tours and shows how important the technology sector is to industries and communities across the state,” he said.
“We’re delighted to getting experts to centres across the state and we’re looking forward to meeting with business and technology leaders in each city to ensure regional Queensland has the technology skills and tools to compete globally.”
