The Big Idea



Now in its 14th year, Tech in Gov is a large scale, two-day conference and exhibition that brings together ICT leaders and department heads from Federal and State Government to learn, network and source ICT solutions that will play an integral part of the ongoing ICT modernisation within the public sector. 


Tech in Gov focuses on ICT issues that matter most to government. This includes topics covering:

  • Service delivery and citizen experience in an on-demand, 24/7 society
  • Operational functions amid ever-changing technology
  • Compliance and risk management
  • Network infrastructure – mobility and stability
  • Cloud and data management
  • Strategic use of ICT to deliver on policy and effective governance
  • Open engagement to build and leverage knowledge, and foster collaboration

This event is consistently growing year on year, with the 2020 edition consisting of two co-located events: Identity Expo  and  Cyber Security in Government.

When the Dyn DDoS attack occurred in 2016, it quickly became apparent that the world had entered an alarming new era of Internet vulnerability. Which is why the public and private sectors have a shared duty and responsibility for maintaining our country’s security online, defending individual and national interests in cyberspace, in order to protect businesses and individuals from cyber attack.

Ensuring that Australia maintains a secure cyberspace builds trust and confidence for individuals, business and the public sector to do business, share information and innovate online. The Tech in Gov Cyber Security congress brings together leading thinkers from public and private sectors from across the country and around the globe to share insight into the changing landscape of cyber risk.



Digital identity has fast become one of the most significant technology trends on the planet, so much so that almost every country’s public and private sectors are investing significant time and resource into developing the capabilities to verify identity across a wide range of online transaction services.

Yet in this new era of Internet vulnerability, protecting privacy and personal information is paramount, which is why the government and the private sector need to collaborate. The Identity congress brings together public and private sector innovators and leading thinkers to share insight into how they are working within Australia's National Identity Security Strategy to guide identity security initiatives in key areas, such as maintaining the security of identity documents, authentication standards, biometric interoperability and integrity of identity data holdings, as well as procedures for document verification.
