Safeguarding Australia is Australia’s premier national security conference.
9th – 10th May 2018, Canberra
The diversity, the increase and damage from terrorist attacks, growth of cyber-enabled espionage and criminality and the increasing concerns about foreign interference create a contemporary threat environment which calls for the need to rapidly coordinate interagency efforts to meet risks to the public.
This year’s summit will address developments of contemporary interagency operations and focus on the friction points created through developing a integrated strategic focus. In particular, the conference will look at breaching the gap for sharing of information/intelligence, policy, tactics and capability. Recognising modern-day thought in breaking down self-imposed barriers, allowing us to sufficiently structure to better secure Australia.
