Richard Addiscott, Director of IT Planning and Security at Curtin University presented the session “Three C’s of an effective information security program in the age of digital disruption: Context, Collaboration, and Culture.”
To ensure information security teams are really keeping in step with their organisations – as they’re being disrupted or if they’re the disruptor – these three elements provide the critical underpinnings of an effective information security program. This presentation provided an insight into the high-level approach Richard and his team have adopted to deliver high-quality information security outcomes, including certification to the ISO 27001:2013 standard, at Curtin University.
