Join our cybersecurity delegation to Melbourne

The Victorian Government is hosting a one day program in Melbourne to coincide with CyberCon, Australia’s largest cyber conference that will be held in Melbourne 17 – 19 October 2023.

The aim of the program is to provide cybersecurity and AI companies with insights into the Victorian and Australian cybersecurity ecosystems, highlighting business opportunities to consider for a potential Australian market entry. The program will also give attendees an opportunity to connect with local clients, partners and suppliers.

The program will include:

  • an exclusive roundtable with industry experts
  • business matching
  • keynote address, followed by networking opportunities

It will be hosted on Monday, 16 October 2023 at Level 5 Conference Centre, 121 Exhibition Street, Melbourne, Australia, in the Melbourne CBD.

Why invest in Melbourne for cybersecurity development?

World-leading research capability, deep talent, secure regulatory environment, and low cost of doing business are just some of the reasons cybersecurity companies like DarkTrace, KnowB4, Aiculus, Telstra Purple and Google call Melbourne home.

Demand for cybersecurity products and services is growing, with the nation’s appetite for cyber solutions expected to see sales grow to A$7.6 billion by 2024.
