About the Security SIG

The 2013 AIIA Member Survey identified that 41.7% of the members surveyed were interested in ICT Security and 33% interested in Cyber Safety as a future Event topic.

The national Security SIG has been established to give AIIA members a forum to discuss Security issues, exchange ideas, contribute to Security policy development and identify opportunities for the effective application if ICT Security solutions.

Activities

The Security SIG actively identifies key issue areas within ICT Security in Australia, and facilitates work on policy and advocacy projects in order to address these issues in collaboration with both industry and Government.

The Security SIG holds monthly meetings by teleconference, on the 2nd Friday of each month from 12-1pm to discuss current ICT Security issues. Please register your interest with AIIA contacts below to attend the meetings.
