The Minister for Small Business, Innovation and Trade, the Hon. Philip Dalidakis MP, will lead a Victorian data and cyber security trade mission to Israel from 13 – 18 November 2016. This trade mission is being organised in partnership with the Australian Israel Chamber of Commerce (AICC).
The Victorian Government is currently implementing a number of strategic initiatives designed to make Melbourne and the State the pre-eminent Cybersecurity research, innovation and commercialisation hub of Asia-Pacific. Principally these initiatives include the establishment of the Oceania Cyber Security Centre (OCSC) along with the first international office of Oxford University’s Global Cyber Security Capacity Centre, and the consolidation of CSIRO / Data 61 Cybersecurity Innovation and Leadership Hub.
These initiatives provide a platform for Victorian, Australian and international industry and academia to collaborate on Cybersecurity research and development activities in addition to providing a focal point for enterprises to partner with their international counterparts. It is envisaged that as part of this trade mission, Victorian and Israeli Cybersecurity businesses will be able to facilitate partnerships through the opportunity presented by the OCSC.
The trade mission program will coincide with the 4th International Conference on Homeland Security and Cyber in Tel Aviv, and include business to business meetings, site visits and networking events.
Expressions of interest are sought from entities with capabilities in cyber security - including critical infrastructure protection and data and information management.
Numbers are limited, and expressions of interest will be assessed on a competitive basis.
