Dear Connect Smart partner,
As you will be aware, the Minister of Broadcasting, Communications and Digital Media, Hon Clare Curran, has announced a comprehensive refresh of New Zealand’s Cyber Security Strategy and Action Plan.
A key component of the this refreshwill be ensuring a strong public-private partnership , at the earliest possible stage. We would like to invite you to a workshop session to discuss options for the Strategy refresh in greater detail and begin a conversation regarding opportunities for collaboration.
The strategy may focus on a number of areas, including:
- testing whether our institutional arrangements are optimal;
- thinking about more structured engagement with the private sector;
- considering what more needs to be done to address cybercrime;
- expanding our international efforts and looking at deterrence mechanisms;
- focusing on the scope to build New Zealand’s cyber security industry and research capability, and to grow a skilled cyber security workforce; and
- ensuring that we approach new technologies with security in mind.
Workshops will be held at:
Monday, 30 April
Spark, 167 Victoria Street West

KPMG, Level 9, 10 Customhouse Quay
Friday, 04 May
