Review of the event within our directory:

This is a key event for all women working in tech, especially Cybersecurity, in Australia.

Here’s the interview:

What’s The “Best Thing” About Your Event(s)?

Our aim is to raise the profile of the Australian IT Security, Cyber, Protective Security and Resilience industry to inspire young women and men to consider a career in this sector.

We do this by honouring their accomplishments, value, and contributions to the Australian market and giving the recognition they deserve.

How Would You Like To See Your Event(s) Evolve?

Expand into NZ and Asia

What Do You Look For In Speakers And Their Presentations?

Inspirational speakers with the ability to capture the audience through storytelling, need to be female.

What’s Your Prediction for 2021 In A Post-Covid-19 World? Will Virtual Events Take Over Or Will We See A Return To The “Traditional Physical Events” Format?

I think we will see a return of physical events but smaller with more live streaming.
