About the conference

In Australia, the annual AusCERT conference is the premier IT security event for IT security professionals and all those with an interest in IT security. This is the 12th year we have been running this conference and interest in the conference from delegates, speakers and sponsors has grown over the years. For the last 5 years, about 1000 delegates attended AusCERT conferences and AusCERT2013 is expected to attract similar numbers.

AusCERT is the leading Computer Emergency Response Team for Australia and provides computer information security advice to the Australian public, its members, including the higher education sector. We are a single point of contact for dealing with computer security incidents affecting or involving Australian networks. Read more about us - click here.

What delegates said about our AusCERT2012

"The event was top-notch, and I now know why it is considered one of the global security shows that must be attended. You are clearly the best at what you do, and I applaud you for such a tremendous success."

"The quality of the attendees, the event location and date and the ease to exhibit successfully are primary reasons, along with the quality of speakers."

"I am sending you this note to congratulate you on your fine work organising yet another great AusCERT event. Great job! See you next year."

"We wanted to congratulate you on yet another superb conference. We very much enjoyed being part of the event. We look forward to our continued participation."

What delegates said about our previous conferences

"...all the vendors in Australia that are serious about information security are there..."

"If you haven't been, then start planning to be there next year. Decisions are made by those who show up."

"Excellent conference - calibre of speakers was outstanding."

"AusCERT continues to offer the highest quality conference I have attended in the past 12 months."

"Keynotes were uniformly of a high standard and a good variety of topics."

"Extremely great value for money considering so many high profile speakers!"

"It's one of the best conferences I've attended!"

"We had trouble choosing which speakers to listen to - we ended up sending a delegate to cover each stream."
