AISA ACT Branch Meeting | 16 April 2024

AISA Branch Meeting
Hosted by the AISA ACT Branch, please join us for a face-to-face meeting and networking opportunity with a interactive presentation and discussion with guest speakers Tony Haske, CEO and Founder of Goldilock and General Sir Chris Deverell, Senior Advisor - Defence and Security and former Commander of the UK Joint Forces Command.


Presentation Title:
 Is your network vulnerable? Traditional segmentation is falling short.

Imagine a cyberattack on critical infrastructure, but the damage is contained. Our presentation unveils a revolutionary approach to network security: remotely activated, on-demand physical segmentation. Discover how this disrupts traditional, software-based methods, leaving them exposed to IP manipulation.
This session dives deep into the benefits for defense and critical infrastructure. Learn how physical segmentation creates isolated environments, even when attackers exploit IP vulnerabilities. We'll explore real-world applications and demonstrate how remote non-IP based activation empowers a swift response, minimising downtime and safeguarding your most essential systems.

Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions of the speakers and refreshments and drinks will be served after the presentation.
