Symantec CEO to speak at CeBIT Australia

Wednesday, 13 December, 2017


The opening cybersecurity keynote speaker at CeBIT Australia will be Symantec CEO Greg Clark.

Symantec plays a critical role in helping protect the world against rising levels of cybercrime and insider threats.

In the last 12 months alone, the company has been at the forefront of defending people against attacks like WannaCry, Petya and others.

“The threat environment is more complex than ever. This year alone, we’ve seen nation states conduct political manipulation and sabotage, while cybercriminals have caused unprecedented levels of disruption for consumers,” said Clark.

“Protecting our homes, identities and families is now of concern to all citizens. As we help people embark on this unfamiliar terrain, I look forward to addressing the approach we’re taking to give Australians the tools they need to help protect their entire digital lives at CeBIT Australia 2018.”

Joining Symantec as a Diamond Sponsor in 2018 is leading provider of IT solutions to the global travel industry Amadeus, which will showcase solutions never before seen at CeBIT Australia. Having invested heavily in research and development to deliver tailored travel solutions that drive business growth over the last three decades, Amadeus provides a unique B2B perspective on technical innovation in the travel sector.

“CeBIT Australia is where business leaders from across the Asia Pacific come to hear from the best business and technology minds from around the world. It is an honour to welcome Greg Clark as an international keynote speaker for 2018. Mr Clark is a world-leading voice on the ever-evolving cybersecurity landscape and brings a calibre of knowledge along with industry insights that are synonymous with CeBIT Australia,” said Harvey Stockbridge, managing director at Hannover Fairs Australia.

CeBIT Australia is supported by the NSW Government and continues other valuable partnerships in 2018, including Vodafone as Strategic Partner and City of Sydney and nbn as Supporting Partners.

CeBIT Australia, 15–17 May 2018 will return to the International Convention Centre Sydney, Darling Harbour.
