  • Trusted information on sharing workshop: 10.30 – 12.30

    Date: 2nd May 2017
    Time: 10.30h-12.30h
    Venue: QT, Canberra.
    Format: Roundtable discussion

    Objective

    To explore the area of information sharing across government and business and between sectors to create a security and resilient society. Issues discussed will include:

    • Current information sharing arrangements and their efficacy
    • How to improve information sharing
    • Who speaks for the security profession?


    Overview

    Fighting networks with bureaucracies was never going to work, especially in an environment where large organisations rely on small enterprises — often single-employee consultancies — to operate. A move from an information hoarding to trusted information sharing is vital to ensure a capacity for security, resilience and recovery on a day-to-day basis as well as in the event of a major disruption, regardless of cause.

    Taking an appreciative inquiry approach, in this two-hour workshop international and local experts explore current arrangements, what can be done better, and how to go about doing so.
