AISA ACT Branch Meeting | 28 September 2023

AISA Branch Meeting
Hosted by the AISA ACT Branch and ISACA Canberra Chapter, please join us for a very special event featuring leading cyber industry practitioners for a panel session discussing Cyber Security Careers Pathways.


Topic: Cyber Security Careers Pathways

There has been much discussion and debate on the state of cyber security talent and the many ramifications that unfold from it. The cyber industry faces significant changes as it evolves into a professional vocation, faces growing demand and is impacted by new and updated law and regulation. The need for practitioners has never been more critical. AISA and ISACA has assembled an elite group of cyber academics and practitioners for an in depth discussion on this issue.

The session will be interactive to allow for significant audience participation. This is your opportunity to gain insights on the relevant qualifications and certifications, how to prepare for career change, or understand where the demand is growing within the cyber industry. See how others navigated their way to be successful, recognised cyber practitioners.

Hear how they overcome various obstacles and challenges in progressing their careers. Understand why professionalism of the cyber industry is a big issue and why it may be needed. Learn how to attract and retain this scarce resource. If you are looking to start your cyber career, changing careers, building your cyber team, or leading cybersecurity for your organisation, you need to attend!
