Palo Alto Networks Supports Australian Government Initiative for Cyber Security

Palo Alto Networks announced its support of the Australian government’s International Cyber Engagement Strategy, launched on 4 October, 2017.

In support of the capacity-building efforts of Australia’s new International Cyber Engagement Strategy, Palo Alto Networks will deliver training and sharing of best practices to businesses in the region. The project will raise the understanding of cyber security as a business risk within C-suites in ASEAN countries.

‘You will note throughout this strategy that partnership is the watchword. The Australian Government appreciates that, to deliver on our ambition to increase regional cyber capacity, we need innovative partnerships with the private sector.

Palo Alto Networks will conduct technical and other cyber security training for ASEAN businesses in partnership with industry and this will complement the initiative to translate our very own Australian Signals Directorate’s world-leading, ‘Essential Eight’ mitigation strategies’.
– The Hon Julie Bishop MP, Minister for Foreign Affairs

‘In order for the market to reach its full potential, we must combat cybercrime and help close digital divides in the region. This is a joint effort, requiring businesses and governments to share information and collaborate. That’s why Australia’s new international Cyber Engagement Strategy emphasises partnering with the private sector, and companies like Palo Alto Networks, who are at the frontline of helping businesses understand and mitigate the cyberthreats they face’.
– Dr Tobias Feakin, Australian Ambassador for Cyber Affairs

‘Cybersecurity is a culture that every organisation needs to build, strengthen and foster across all levels of the business. It is essential that leaders ensure cyber risk is considered among their organisation’s overall risk management strategy. Palo Alto Networks aims to educate and empower business leaders to make informed decisions on managing cyber risks so that they can run their organisations securely while preventing material impact to them from successful cyberattacks’.
– Sean Duca, Vice President and Chief Security Officer, APAC, Palo Alto Networks
