2013 SRI Security Congress
"Dealing at the Edge of Darkness"
2-4 December, 2013
Perth, Western Australia
The SRI Security Congress hosts 6 security based conferences over 3 days. The 2013 Security Congress aims to draw together all areas of security professions and disciplines as part of a holistic engagement with the wider security discourse.
The modern security environment is complex and increasingly becoming integrated into heterogeneous digital systems that collect and produce vast amounts of data. The deluge of data that this produces generates a darkness and uncertainty in decision-making. Our systems are now under sustained constant attack through advanced persistent threat. These threats are manifest and many, producing second, third and fourth order consequences on systems that were not realised even a few short years ago. We are now in a state of dealing with a highly chaotic, entropic and some would say, decaying level of security and by implication order. The increasing heterogeneity and emergent expansion of the Internet through the adoption of IP version 6 also further add to an already chaotic environment.
The aim of this conference is to explore methods which help in reducing the efficacy, persistence and ability of advanced persistent threats and blended threats to threaten our critical systems stability. It should also explore methods, tools, techniques and frameworks in dealing with some of the wicked problems that our increasingly interconnected, digitised systems are producing that threaten our economic and social well-being.
The 6 hosted conferences are:
- 14th Australian Information Warfare Conference
- 11th Australian Information Security Management Conference
- 11th Australian Digital Forensics Conference
- 6th Australian Security and Intelligence Conference
- 4th Australian Counter Terrorism Conference
- 2nd Australian e-Health Informatics and Security Conference
