Defence and Security Symposium 2020

Defence and Security Symposium 2020

On December 8th, Deakin University will bring together leading experts from government, industry, and academia to discuss challenges and opportunities in establishing sovereign capabilities pertaining to Defence and Security for Australia.

The Defence and Security Symposium (DSS) is a free, annual Deakin University event hosted by the Centre for Cyber Security Research and Innovation (CSRI) and the Institute for Intelligent Systems Research and Innovation (IISRI).

The Defence White Paper recognises that a close collaboration between Defence, Industry and Academia is vital to the security of Australia. In the process, this collaboration also works to foster game changing innovation and commercialisation opportunities. We invite you to register your attendance and experience this exciting opportunity to exchange ideas and learn from leading experts.

Symposium Theme: Sovereign capability and threats in a dynamically changing world

The symposium topics encompass strategic and operational issues related to government priority, industrial complexity, and research intricacy on sovereign defence and security capabilities in the land, sea, air, space and cyber domains. With rapid advances in smart technologies, the emerging and disruptive cyber-physical threats toward the established sovereign capabilities stand as one of the critical problems to be addressed.

During the symposium, subject matter experts will share expertise and experience, and shed light on policies, strategies, and technologies to undertake the near-, medium-, and long-term challenges in ensuring sustainability of sovereign defence and security capabilities of Australia as well as in defying the ongoing and imminent threats in today’s dynamically changing world.

Please register in advance for this free event.
