Cyber Trade Mission to Australia, November 2024

The British High Commission Canberra, in association with Defence and Security Exports (DSE)
and ADS Group, invites you to join a trade mission to meet and engage with stakeholders in
Australia’s cyber ecosystem and identify business and collaboration opportunities.

In November 2023, the Australian Government released the 2023-2030 Australian Cyber Security Strategy which illustrated the challenge cyber security poses and the actions needed. 2023-2025 was identified as the window to address immediate concerns and build partnerships to ensure long term security.

This mission of up to 15 companies, in addition to government delegates will be centred on cyber and digital capabilities relating to cyber security, digital twinning, IoT security and the implications of AI and Quantum technologies on the above.

sector. This trade mission is jointly led by UK DSE and ADS Group, with support from AusTrade, the Home Office and various other government departments from both the UK and Australia.
