2012 International Cyber Resilience Conference

16-17 July, 2012
Perth, Western Australia

The conference theme is 'Building resilient systems that address advanced persistent threats'. The advance persistent threat (APT) from cyber incursion and attacks on organizations and individuals is increasing and is threatening economic and even social stability. The aim is to explore the issues, problems and possible solutions to the APT posed by cyber attacks.

These issues of resilience are complex and manifest, and require significant consideration and research. The solution to these issues is not wholly found in technical solutions to the problem, but in fact are a combination of policy, implementation and maintenance that uses a total system approach. The total system approach includes hardware, software and human factors.
