Graham has extensive experience in critical information infrastructure protection (CIP) and spent four years working in this area for the government. During this period he managed a number of major IT security and information protection issues including computer network attacks during the Y2K period and IT security threats to the 2000 Olympic games.

Commissioner for Law Enforcement Data Security
David Watts is a lawyer who has practised in both the private and public sectors specialising in information technology, information privacy, intellectual property, governance and regulatory systems. Before his current role, he was Assistant Secretary, Legal Services Branch, of the Department of Health and Ageing in Canberra where he led the development of the regulatory framework to support national e-health initiatives and the national registration and accreditation scheme for the health professions. Before that, he headed the legal branch of the Victorian Department of Human Services. David has advised a number of State and Territory governments on online and information privacy issues and was the joint architect of the Northern Territory's Information Act 2002. David was appointed Commissioner for Law Enforcement Data Security on 4 November 2008.
Presenting: Victoria's New Privacy and Security Regulatory Reforms
Victoria is to reform both public sector privacy and information security by establishing a single statutory privacy and information security regulator: the Privacy and Data Protection Commissioner. David Watts will lead the transition to bring the two existing bodies into the one new entity, and will be responsible for the oversight of the current Victorian information privacy regime, the oversight of the current law enforcement data security regime, and, in addition, the implementation of a new Victorian Protective Security Policy Framework (VPSPF). The establishment of the new integrated regime will place Victoria at the forefront of privacy and information security law in Australia, ensuring a more sophisticated, streamlined and transparent privacy and information security environment. This presentation will provide background to the reforms, a broad overview of the new regime, and will outline salient current privacy and information security issues faced by the new regime.

Presenting: Learn how to utilise algorithm agility to better protect your online business from Hackers
Business owners require flexibility and scalability in their efforts to build trust and protect online sites and transactions from Hackers. Traditionally these transactions have been protected with Public Key Cryptography, using a variety of algorithms that have evolved to defeat most attacks. This though is needs to further evolve as hackers are constantly developing more sophisticated methods to breach security protections and inflict damage on a business or its customers.This presentation examines algorithm agility, including Elliptical Curve Cryptography, how it fits into the current and evolving security landscape and how your business can enhance online security through a more flexible, scalable approach to public key cryptography across SSL, TLS and IPSEC.

Information Warfare and Emerging Nations: Cyber becomes the equalizer
There was once a time, not that long ago, when even the term "information warfare" was highly contested. Does it exist - yes, no, maybe so? The reality is, according to the FBI, over 100 countries posses the ability to conduct information warfare, and according to Gartner, a major G20 nation will suffer a significant attack in the short term. Espionage and sabotage are two primary examples of how nations can mount a successful, inexpensive, and damaging attack. I will share examples of nation-state incidents, events that have occurred with the support of the "crowd" as a force multiplier, and even examples of the convergence of kinetic and non-kinetic warfare.
I will focus the content on what I've learned working with emerging and frontier markets that lack the resources to mount conventional, military attacks. While refining uranium, building nuclear powered submarines, and leveraging stealth air power may be out of the realm for many of these countries – launching a successful cyber attack that could yield billions in intellectual property or even have a dramatic impact on critical infrastructure isn't only possible – we've seen it happen.

Presenting: Is That a SCADA In Your Smart Grid?
A look at the ‘smart grid’, both overseas and in Australia and how it can, and will, be hacked for fun and profit.
Although SCADA systems and the smart grid seem very different technologies their similarities mean that there is much the smart grid can learn from SCADA systems, and vice versa.
