Recognising and Addressing Extreme & Existential Cyber Threats: Strategic Leadership in the Digital Age

In an era marked by rapid technological advancements, the evolving landscape of cyber threats has emerged as a key focus of concern in boardrooms and executive suites across Australia and internationally. Recognising and addressing these threats, especially those of an extreme and existential nature, is paramount to ensure the resilience, prosperity and longevity of our organisations.

This event is designed to bring together senior leaders from across critical industry sectors to explore the following topics:

  • What distinguishes these so-called long tail risk events from other cyber threats
  • The latest trends in extreme and existential cyber threats
  • The impact of these threats on critical infrastructure, the economy, the environment and society
  • Best practices for identifying, assessing, and mitigating these threats
  • The role of C-suite executives in leading their organisations' cyber risk posture


We warmly welcome you to attend and as a primer, we encourage you to consider the following questions and look forward to your insights:

  • Cyber threats are pervasive and increasing daily in both volume and variety, so which cyber threats truly qualify as being extreme or existential in nature and impact, and has your organisation identified your own set of extreme and/or existential cyber threats?
  • How does your organisation’s risk management response to these long tail risk events differ from the management of everyday or less extreme cyber threats?
  • How important is cross sector collaboration in addressing extreme and existential cyber threats facing your organisation?
  • Crucially, is your organisation’s cyber security capability up to the task of defending against these special categories of cyber events and how do you go about briefing your board on the current state of play?
