AustCyber, the Australian Cyber Security Growth Network, in partnership with Austrade, led a delegation of cyber security companies to the 2022 RSA Conference in San Francisco.
Regarded as the world’s leading forum for cyber security professionals, AustCyber delegates tapped into the full potential of the international export market, building relationships with investors and industry leaders to expand Australia’s cyber security presence. Firms including threat hunting and networking monitoring tool Hyprfire, email and document classification and protection experts Janusnet, and DevSecOps visibility platform SecureStack, formed part of the AustCyber contingent participating in the Australia House event in partnership with Austrade.
Each participant engaged in comprehensive, cutting-edge educational sessions presented by leading industry experts covering critical security issues and emerging concepts facing organisations worldwide. Over fifteen hours of education sessions touched on topics including hackers and threats, risk management & governance, identity, and securing the remote workforce.
“The new concept of cyber security has implications beyond Australia, with a large proportion of our value chains dependent on the digital security of other countries,” said AustCyber CEO Michael Bromley. “This reinforces the importance of the RSA Conference Australia House event in facilitating the expansion of our export market through increased access to partners, allies and international enterprise customers.”
“By participating in workshops, networking events and reverse pitches, our leading cyber security companies will receive strategic advice from entrepreneurs who have successfully penetrated the US market whilst showcasing the ongoing business potential between the US and Australia.”
The RSA Conference was a significant opportunity for Australian companies looking to expand into the US and UK markets and capture a higher share of the US$147 billion global industry. Building relationships and securing investment will allow local cyber security companies to establish themselves in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), reinforcing Australia’s reputation as a trusted partner and centre of research excellence.
Hyprfire CEO Tim Jones said at the 2022 RSA Conference, "The Australia House program was a great experience and an amazing preparation for the RSA conference. We learnt a lot of useful information from the EIR, the expert panel and the VCs! Having AustCyber help us connect to new export markets and connect us to the cyber ecosystem at RSA is a huge boost for Hyprfire."
Director at the West Australian AustCyber Innovation Hub, Cecily Rawlinson said “It is excellent to be here, representing the National Node Network, co-funded by our state and territory governments. Our role at AustCyber is to support our cyber communities, both locally in Perth and across Australia as they export and access international markets so I am delighted to be here supporting some amazing WA home-grown cybers such as Hyprfire and BankVault.”
