Safeguarding Australia 2017: Turning Points in Security

3–4 May 2017

QT Canberra, Canberra

Competing priorities, growing threats and increasing complexity will continue to present fundamental challenges to Australia’s national security agenda in the coming years. Public and private security professionals – policy makers, practitioners and providers – will be forced to address a wide range of issues which have developed over recent decades and continue to grow, such as violent extremism, cyber threats (from lone and state actors), border control and legislation.

In coming years, they will need to also contend with the security issues inherent in societal issues, adding known-unknown dimensions to an already complex national security agenda, most notably an ageing population, technology creeping into all facets of life, and diversity in the workplace reflecting an increasingly cosmopolitan society.

Safeguarding Australia 2017 will help face those challenges and shape the security agenda, by taking on its most demanding theme to date: Security at a Turning Point – Innovation, Leadership and Diversity.

For over 14 years, the Research Network for a Secure Australia (RNSA), a not-for-profit network of security policy makers, professionals and academics, has gathered at the Safeguarding Australia annual national security summit to hear from high-level speakers representing both government and corporate viewpoints, exchange ideas, debate issues, and learn about techniques, cases studies and ground-breaking research, to meet the security challenges of today and the solutions for tomorrow.

In addition to briefings on current policies, trends and activities, Safeguarding Australia 2017 will go further by drawing on local and international experts to examine three overarching themes affecting the way security and risk is managed to protect the nation, namely:

  1. Innovation – exploring knowledge around technology, standards and research
  2. Leadership – focusing on the next generation, the greying population and education
  3. Diversity – in particular, the role of communications as a security tool addressing disparate ethnicities, genders and culture

In addition to a pre-conference workshop currently being designed, Safeguarding Australia 2017 will begin by outlining current challenges and activities and lead into defining future directions and solutions.

Safeguarding Australia is the only high-level conference run by and for leading thinkers, policymakers and practitioners in the national security domain, working across whole-of-government at state and federal levels, including law enforcement and intelligence agencies, as well as engaging with corporate and private security practitioners and providers.

Past attendees and current bookings include:

  • senior representatives from security, intelligence, military and law enforcement
  • risk and security managers and consultants
  • agency security advisors
  • critical infrastructure owners and operators
  • engineers, scientists, technologists, researchers and academics
  • corporate and business executives responsible for security and risk
