About AusCERT Conferences

The AusCERT Conference is the largest and oldest information security conference in Australia. Each year, we attract in the vicinity of 1000 participants and approximately 60 sponsors. The conference is held on Australia’s beautiful Gold Coast where the weather is fine and warm, even in winter. The conference is a great opportunity to discuss IT security issues, network with industry peers, see the latest in IT security products and services, and enjoy 5-star accommodation, good food, wine and entertainment, and good company.

AusCERT is the premier 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.
