Event description

Description

Join CyRise for a fireside chat with CEO Scott Handsaker and two leading Cyber Security experts.

CyRise is a venture accelerator focused on early stage cyber security startups. Based in Melbourne, we’re looking for the best founders across the Asia-Pacific region to join our program. Successful startups will receive $50,000 in capital, access to world class mentors and investors, introductions to corporate customers as well as trips to Israel and the US. CyRise aims to give every participant all they need to successfully take an idea to the global market.

With our National Roadshow events taking place across Australian capital cities, CyRise invites you to listen in on our fireside chats as we discuss the challenges and demands that are facing the security sector today. It’s a great opportunity to be informed on all things CyRise has to offer as well as hear from the very best people in the field.

In Sydney our guests are:

Michelle Price

Michelle, who’s COO of the Australian Cyber Security Growth Network, has a wealth of public sector security experience. With the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet she held Senior Adviser roles in National Security Policy and Planning and Domestic Cyber Policy, before becoming Senior Adviser, Cyber Security at ANU’s National Security College.

Andrey Shirben

Over the past 12 years Andrey has invested in over 70 early stage startup companies, helping many entrepreneurs build great companies. Andrey is an early investor in Israeli cyber security company Cymmetria as well as a founder of Avantgard, a cyber security focused consultancy based in Australia.
