The Victorian Society for Computers and the Law and the Law Institute of Victoria’s Technology & Innovation Section invite you to join us for a discussion and networking event centred on the theme: Cyberwarfare is the New Cold War.
New weapons will be made of code, not uranium. Unlike conventional warfare, cyberwarfare is characterised by constant innovation, near real-time and global consequences, and difficulties in attributing the attacker. However, despite the virtual nature of attacks, the consequences for our societies are no less real. As countries develop their defensive and offensive cyber capabilities, policy makers must consider what the new rules of engagement should look like.
This session will include presentations from Katherine Mansted (Director of Cyber Intelligence at CyberCX) and Professor Matthew Warren (Director of the RMIT University Centre for Cyber Security Research and Innovation/Professor of Cyber Security at RMIT), followed by networking with canapés and drinks.
This event is free for VSCL/LIV members and open to non-members for a $20 fee.
This registration page is for VSCL members only. LIV members or attendees who are not members of either organisation can register to attend via the LIV events portal.
Online registration closes 24 hours before the event begins.
