Keynote Speaking Presentation – DialpadGPT: How Generative AI Can Transform Your Business

Donny Chai, Senior ANZ, Sales Engineer, Dialpad

AI is rapidly transforming every aspect of professional life. For many IT leaders, AI is becoming an essential solution to many business challenges. As with any new technology, there are tangible limitations on access, scale, and usability when it comes to AI. These limitations include security, expertise, model accuracy, usage restrictions, cost constraints, accessible computing power, and more.

This session explores how Generative AI, exemplified by DialpadGPT, addresses these challenges, offering a scalable, secure platform for unlocking AI benefits.

Attendees will gain insights into:

  • The impact of mass-market Large Language Models (LLMs) on digital transformation.
  • Dialpad’s unique Approach to Generative Ai & Large Language Models.
  • Real-world case studies demonstrating the power of Generative AI.

Breakout Session – Moving into AI-Powered Email Security in 2024

Celeste Lowe, General Manager Cyber Security, Ventia (previously Group Director IT Security at Nine)
Security teams are stuck in a cycle of investigating endless support tickets for phishing emails and Business Email Compromise attacks. Meanwhile, the threat continues to grow, with Australian businesses reporting losses of nearly $100M to BEC alone in 2022. To combat attacks that are increasing in both volume and sophistication, a whole new industry of user awareness training and phishing simulation has arisen, a market expected to grow from $5.6 billion globally in 2023 to $10 billion by 2027. But staying a step ahead, threat actors are now leveraging generative AI to create even more realistic attacks to fool your employees.

Trying to stay one step ahead by looking for traditional indicators of compromise is a fool’s errand, especially as AI changes the game. So what can be done? How do we stop ever-evolving email attacks from bypassing the SEG? And is user awareness training still your only saviour in the coming year?

Talking Points for group discussion:
1. What strategies are being deployed from both a technology and process perspective to combat exposure to financial losses through email threats and how effective are our current security tools at detecting new threats without IOCs?
2. How successful have user awareness training programs been in enabling employees to correctly identify malicious and fraudulent emails?
3. Have you ever felt like the board or CEO would sack you after a breach? What if the email that led to the breach was allowed in by your SEG? Would you sack your SEG?
4. What types of security is needed to prevent AI-generated attacks from reaching you?

Breakout Session – Reducing Complexity with a Cybersecurity Mesh
Are You Ready to Adopt a New Cloud Security Operation Model?

Cutting-edge security teams are coming up with new approaches and initiatives to increase their company’s agility through security and move from slowing the business to accelerating it.

Across ANZ, organisations are rapidly expanding cloud adoption and expecting security leaders to follow suit, and fast. As a result, CISO’s need to rethink their approach to cloud security be able to move at the speed of business, ensure compliance with regulation, and enable their organisations to innovate with AI.

Breakout Session – Backup ≠ Cyber Recovery: Navigating the Shift in Required Capabilities and Shared Responsibilities between IT and Cyber Teams

Alister Freese, Account Executive, Rubrik

The weight of cybercrime is taking its toll not only on CIO and CISOs. An overwhelming 96% of IT and Security leaders suffered significant emotional or psychological impact as they continue to face unending challenges in protecting their company’s data, according to a recent Wakefield Research report ‘The State of Data Security’ commissioned by Rubrik*.

While prevention is impossible, Businesses, Leaders, and the Customers they serve need certainty in their ability to recover critical services in a timely manner.

Join thought leaders from Rubrik along with a select group of your IT and security peers, as we discuss challenges, the human impact of cybercrimes on an organisation, and best practices moving forward to protect your people and your data infrastructure.

*New Rubrik data security survey: 99% of organisations reported a breach in the last year – and 72% paid a ransom; but, only 16% who paid recovered their data.

Breakout Session – The Essential Eight: Overcoming Your Challenges with PAM

Scott Hesford, Senior Director, Solutions Engineering, APJ, BeyondTrust
Improving their maturity within the Essential Eight is considered daunting for many organisations. Strategies such as application control, restricting admin privileges and user application hardening are seen as difficult to implement effectively without impacting employee productivity.

However, security technologies such as Privileged Access Management (PAM) can help organisations bridge the gap for a number of requirements of the Essential Eight, including the above three. Modern PAM solutions can also provide compensating controls on other elements of the Essential Eight. Join this discussion amongst peers of the Essential Eight, how organisations are aligning to it and how PAM can support those strategies.

Attend this roundtable and you will:
• Hear from your peers on how they are approaching the Essential Eight in their organisations
• Know how Privileged Access Management maps against the eight strategies, including the November 2023 update
• Learn some of the best practices around implementing parts of the Essential Eight.

Breakout Session – Harnessing Mobile Devices to Drive Digital Productivity

Angelo Lo Certo, Head of Product and Professional Services, imei

Mobile devices place the power of distributed information in the hands of many throughout the organisation, but how to overcome the challenges of reliable connectivity, information security and user downtime, to drive productivity?

As the number of mobile information workers in your organisation increases, so does the complexity of managing the device fleets ranging from mobile phones through tablets to field-based rugged devices and laptops. The combinations of device type, network, apps, user profiles, authorisation and authentication, and use cases, increase exponentially.

Mobile information workers and mobile technologies are not a new part of business – it’s now a mature part of organisations’ digital transformation. However, the tools, processes and systems to make mobile technology ‘just work’ are constantly evolving.

This session is a combination of current industry state-of-the-art mobile productivity enhancement, reinforced by a moderated discussion by an experienced thought leader, and the chance to hear directly from peers about issues faced, open questions and interesting experiences.

  • how to overcome the challenges of reliable connectivity, information security and user downtime to drive productivity
  • mobile device security considerations – understanding the what, where, who, accessible info, what your employees connect to etc.
  • why manage your mobiles - benefits, expense management & cost allocation etc
  • use cases on how industry organisations benefit from having their devices managed externally. With a discussion with your peers on their own firsthand priorities and considerations when managing their technology.

As businesses use digital innovation to become more competitive, cybersecurity often receives insufficient focus.

  • Increased adoption of zero-trust approaches
  • Embedding security without hindering digital innovation
  • New AI-related vulnerabilities
