Did you know that, 80% of Australian organisations experienced a ransomware attack, compared to the global average of 68%1? Cyber security challenges continue to evolve, compliance obligations increase and skills shortages stress your teams – what if we could reframe our mindset towards cyber security?

At Data#3, we think of cyber security as not just an organisational requirement, but also as a strategic enabler. Cyber security management shouldn’t exist within a vacuum. It requires a coordinated, multi-disciplinary approach with considerations for organisational safety and responsibility shared throughout the organisation, not just tied to IT.


Data#3, proudly sponsored by Cisco, Microsoft and Palo Alto Networks, are pleased to invite you to:

Delivering the Digital Future, Securely – for Western Australia.


This global cyber security awareness month, join us for a thought-provoking cyber security state seminar at The Westin, Perth. Guests will be joined by keynote speaker, Peter Boulhas, WA Chief Information Security Officer at the Office of Digital Government, to hear how Project Fortify plays an important role in accelerating the cyber security posture of WA.

Attendees will be treated to an interactive panel discussion with Mr Boulhas and security experts from our sponsors.

Take advantage of the opportunity to ask questions and hear the latest security research, recommendations and technical solutions from our vendor experts including:

  • Carl Solder, Chief Technology Officer, Cisco
  • George Coldham, Microsoft Security Advocate and Cloud Architect, Microsoft
  • Martyn Young, Senior Manager System Engineering, Palo Alto Networks

The event will conclude with networking cocktails and canapes, kindly sponsored by Westcon Comstor.

Australian businesses come up against cyber security threats daily. It is up to us to be well positioned to detect and respond to threats to avoid business interruption, reputational damage and potential regulatory enforcement actions that can result from a cyber incident.
