Day 2 @ 14:35

Working smarter, not harder: Leveraging government procurement to improve cybersecurity and supply chains

  • Government spending on ICT procurement dwarfs the budgets directly allocated under the recent cybersecurity strategy - how can this spending power be leveraged to uplift security?
  • There are opportunities to stimulate suppliers to find innovative cyber security solutions that can have direct and indirect security and economic benefits to Australia
  • The talk will examine the barriers to this, and provide recommendations to change the procurement systems, approach and regulations to realise these opportunities
