ISACA Perth Chapter invites information audit, risk, security and governance professionals to this year’s SecureIT Annual Conference. This event will provide attendees with unique perspectives from senior Government and industry leaders on how organisations are responding to regulatory privacy requirements, tackling the growing threat of cybersecurity attacks seeking to expose your data, and all the while managing the increasing costs.
