Talking about the business of Business Resilience



“Let’s celebrate our journeys and embrace the change. Challenge the status quo, be curious and be resilient. The obstacles in front of us are opportunities. Our families, friends, colleagues, and mother earth need this mindset from us, and did I mention let’s have some fun. I hope SekuroKon can spark inspiration and create a community that keeps us moving forward.
– Noel Allnutt. Managing Director, Sekuro


In the 12 months since we started the conversation around the business of business resilience, organisations across Australia and the rest of the world have been exposed to more cyber attacks then ever before, and individuals have felt the impact and the burden of cyber breaches.

The Australian Government has stepped up its efforts too. On 8 December 2022, the Minister for Cyber Security, the Hon. Clare O’Neil MP, announced the development of the 2023-2030 Australian Cyber Security Strategy and in May 2023, Sekuro hosted Minister O’Neil at the office of Mills Oakley in Melbourne. Minister O’Neil made it clear that it is her government’s priority to make Australia the most secure nation by 2030. However, this is only possible through the collaboration of the best thinkers and thought leaders in Australia to uplift cyber resilience and capabilities and take a holistic approach to finding solutions.

Since then the Minister O’Neil has released more details regarding the new National Cyber Security Strategy for Australia, specifically the creation of six Cyber Shields around Australia.

  1. Cyber strong citizens and business.
  2. Safe digital technology.
  3. World class threat sharing and blocking.
  4. Critical infrastructure.
  5. Sovereign capabilities
  6. A resilient region.

Sekuro applauds the commitment to protecting Australians and Australian organisations, and SekuroKon is the perfect opportunity for businesses to learn how to protect themselves from the ever-growing threat of cyber attacks.

Join us for an insightful and enjoyable afternoon of thought provoking presentations and conversations.

Network with the team from Sekuro, key customers, valued event partners and of course no visit to Luna Park should happen without a carnival atmosphere!


SekuroKon ’23 will continue our focus on the benefits of building business resilience, and will feature a wide range of speakers and panels from leading experts from Australia and overseas.

Our agenda will be fast paced, interactive, and present diverse points of view drawn from across our region.

This year, we will break into themed streams allowing delegates to dive deeper into their preferred areas – the technology of business resiliency, or the business of business resiliency.

Our sessions will be sharp and impactful – lightening bursts of information plus 20 or 30 minute sessions to maximise your time and keep your attention focussed.
