Swoose chairing and speaking at Public Sector Digital Transformation Officers Summit 2017

Swoose was invited to chair the conference and also speak on the topic "Cybersecurity as an enabler"

Improved understanding of cyber security has allowed teams to collaborate more securely and more effectively. It is important to think of cyber security as a plus, not a minus. It is an enabler for creating change and a means of better using ICT to improve efficiency and productivity. In this session, Milton will draw on his experience of public and private sector projects, including NSW Public Transport Ticketing System (Opal Card) to discuss:
  • Identifying where the risks are and how to mitigate them;
  • Information Security strategy and implementation; and
  • Undertaking technical reviews to gain certifications.

The 2017 Theme is "Innovation in Delivery"

A digital transformation strategy will never be complete, it is a journey, not a destination. Business priorities are in a continual state of flux and as fast as systems and policies are developed - new technologies arrive and new projects are created. However, the one constant of this environment is the requirement to continually innovate to improve service delivery. To advance your understanding of the key issues we have invited top Public Sector digital leaders and experts in digital and technology focused roles to share advice and insights on innovation and strategy.
