CYBER-defence must go beyond a passive approach, a breakfast in Melbourne is set to hear.

The breakfast, organised by Shipping Australia, is to feature speakers Charlie Offer (an advisory partner with Ernst & Young) and Maersk Line managing director Oceania Gerard Morrison.

According to SAL, the old idea of being protecting one’s data behind a wall and blocking all bad influences is over.

Maersk Line suffered a large cyber-attack last year and Mr Morrison is expected to discuss the lessons and measures since implemented to bolster security.

Mr Offer is to share insights on current cybersecurity trends and how leading organisations are simplifying their approaches to managing risks.

The event follows a similar breakfast that discussed blockchain in September 2017.

“It was 2017’s Wannacry incident that really made boardrooms realise that cybersecurity is no longer just an IT problem,” SAL states.

“In fact, it is a top business risk impacting all industries – and it is here to stay.”

The breakfast is to be held in the Fitzroy Room at the SOFITEL Hotel in Collins Street, Melbourne on 22 August, starting at 7.30am.
