Event description

Description

The Cyber 9/12 Student Challenge is the only program of its kind in the world, with students across different countries and disciplines competing to provide the best policy response to a realistic conflict scenario in cyberspace. 2017 is the first year that this exciting event will be held in the Indo-Pacific, and we kick it off with a keynote speech by Ambassador Tobias Feakin.

What threats and opportunities does Australia face in cyberspace? What role will the Indo-Pacific play in the future of this domain, and how can Australia help secure that future? Ambassador Tobias Feakin will help explain how officials at the highest level of government answer these critical questions.
