Welcome to AusCERT2013

AusCERT is hosting AusCERT2013, the 12th annual AusCERT Information Security Conference from 20th-24th May 2013 at the RACV Royal Pines Resort on Queensland's Gold Coast, Australia.

The theme for AusCERT2013 is "This time, it's personal", reflecting the growth in attacks and unauthorised disclosures of online personal information. Motivated by illicit financial gain, cyber criminals obtain unauthorised access to personal information, but more and more, we are seeing data disclosures being posted publicly by attackers for political motives, rather than financial gain.

Hence the theme will resonate within the information security community and remind us that the online environment provides opportunities galore to capture personal information; of the impact these breaches can have on the lives of individuals; and the importance of information security to prevent these attacks. AusCERT2013 will explore these issues and bring experts from Australia and around the world to provide insight and solutions to deal with these challenges.
