Request an invitation to our Gold Coast Executive Dinner

Our Executive Dinner will take place on Monday October 28 from 6:30 PM – 9:00 PM at Sofitel Gold Coast Broadbeach.

Join Mike Beck, Global Head of Threat Analysis, for a discussion specific to cloud security, as well as lessons learned from deploying Cyber AI to augment human teams in over 3,000 organizations worldwide.

Topics include:

  • Key Threat Vectors in the Cloud: Insider threat, compromised credentials, supply chain attacks, misconfigurations, and more
  • A Cyber Immune System for the Cloud: How self-learning ‘immune system’ technology provides the enterprise-wide context needed to detect subtle threats in the cloud
  • Unified View: The need for real-time visibility of every VM, container, and serverless systems across hybrid and multi-cloud environments
  • Autonomous Response AI: Neutralizing cloud-based attacks before they have time to escalate

Shawn Hardie from the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) will also be joining us to share why he chose Darktrace’s Cyber AI to protect NHVR’s digital infrastructure from cyber-attacks.

The event will commence with a cocktail reception at 6:30 PM, followed by a three-course dinner at 7:15 PM.

Please note that invitations are made at Darktrace’s discretion. Regrettably we are unable to respond to all requests.
