Security at a Turning Point: Innovation, Leadership and Diversity

Safeguarding Australia — the country’s longest running and most influential National Security Summit — brings together government, business and academia to address today’s security challenges, locally and globally.

Being hosted by the Research Network for a Secure Australia (RNSA), guarantees the depth and value of the event to people living and working in the security domain, from Agency Security Advisors to Corporate Security Managers, academics to practitioners, policymakers to consultants.

Developed by and drawing on security’s leading academics, researchers, writers and senior practitioners, Safeguarding Australia consistently delivers an event that goes beyond thought-provoking presentations to creating actionable ideas with practical outcomes and career enhancing knowledge.

With security at a turning point, facing its most complex and demanding environment ever, Safeguarding Australia 2017 National Security Summit — now in its 14th year — will continue to deliver exceptional content, ideas and direction for security policy makers and professionals.

International speakers will address the latest cyber security research and practices in Europe, countering violent extremism in the Middle East, disrupting organised crime and terrorist funding sources in the US, and how international standards can shape governance.

Australian contributors range from Mark Crosweller, Director General, Emergency Management Australia, talking about how security can provide leadership in times of crisis, to Kate Carnell, Australian Small Business and Family Enterprise Ombudsman, on why communication across government and business is vital.
