Cyber Security: Are You Cyber Ready?
15 August 2018 - Melbourne
Earlier this year, the Australian Government implemented new legislation that requires businesses to report incidents that expose personal data. These new laws require Australian and Canadian companies doing business in Australia to publicly report incidents that involve breaches of sensitive personal information.
Understanding what it means to be ready for a cyber incident can help your organisation prevent, prepare and respond to a potential threat. It also means that you can minimise damage to your organisation’s reputation and profitability.
This event will be of particular interest to individuals from small, medium and large enterprises that are looking to better understand cyber security best practices in Australia. For more information visit our events page - www.cacc.com.au/events
Export Development Canada Launches in Australia
In late November 2017, Export Development Canada (EDC) will officially open its Australian operation in Sydney with a special event featuring Peter Hall, Vice-President and Chief Economist, EDC. The Sydney operation marks EDC’s 20th international representation.
A Crown corporation that operates at arm’s length from Government, Export Development Canada is Canada’s export credit agency. EDC supports and develops Canada’s export trade by helping Canadian companies respond to international opportunities.
With a formal presence in Australia, EDC will be well situated to build and strengthen bilateral trade between Canada and Australia. EDC will do so by offering financing to Australian companies and project owners that have, or are considering, business with Canadian companies or their affiliates in the region.
