We’re excited to launch the Australian – Lithuanian Cyber Network, organised by MykolasRomeris University and RMIT University and discuss the impact on state of cyber affairs with Australia and Lithuania.
Tuesday 8th February marks Safer Internet Day, a global initiative that brings families, schools, organisations and governments from 170 countries together to raise awareness about online safety. This new Cyber Network between Australia and Lithuania is a prime example of global collaboration to strengthen the cyber awareness, safety, national cyber security and capability across these two countries as both countries face similar but different cyber security threats.
The launch event will include a welcome speech by His Excellency Gabrielius Landsbergis – Lithuanian Minister of Foreign Affairs, followed by an overview of the cyber security landscape in both Lithuania and Australia. The event will close with an Industry Panel, with representatives from key Lithuanian and Australian industry associations.
