Victoria’s first Cyber Security Strategy was released in August. It details a whole of government approach that focuses on five key priorities - engagement, planning, partnering, service maturity and capability. You can read the Strategy here
The Victorian Government Solicitor’s Office is proud to host a panel discussion to explore the current and emerging cyber threat environment and some of the actions to be taken to increase the government’s cyber security capability and resilience over the next two years and beyond. 
The discussion will be facilitated by Isabel Parsons, Managing Principal Solicitor, who will pose a series of questions to our experienced panel members, encouraging exploration of the technical, risk-management, procurement and legal considerations associated with cyber security.
