The Top 5 Cybersecurity Trends in 2020
Join live webinar session

Cybersecurity has become tied to our own security as our personal data and freedom, including physical safety, are becoming ever more vulnerable. As the digitalisation of the relevant vital data infrastructures increases, so does the risk.

Cybercrime is on the rise, especially as our devices become more sophisticated and valuable targets. On a larger scale, we must also be aware of cyber warfare and how politics influences the use of AI to conduct it, driving the AI arms race between nations. It has become necessary to protect ourselves from technology as much as we rely on it to help us. However, the growing deficit of skilled cybersecurity professionals has only resulted in growing cybersecurity job vacancies and lacklustre cyber defences.

Attend our info session to understand the top trends affecting the development, application and significance of cybersecurity skills in the new decade.

FIRESIDE CHAT: How to start a business capitalising on the sharing economy?
Join live webinar session

Join us at the Murdoch University Fair Fireside Chat to explore the impact of the sharing economy, one of the fastest growing business trends today, and how to capitalise on it.

Chat with our guest speaker Mr Andreas von Maltzahn, co-founder and COO at iWonder, a documentary video streaming service, as he shares the qualities, skillsets and mindsets necessary to be an entrepreneur within this fast-moving economic system and describes the “perfect candidate” for it.

Incorporate actionable information from guest speaker Mr Nicholas Lim, Co-Founder & Business Development of the accredited Outside App, a community tasking platform that allows users to assist one another via a mutual agreement on an agreed cost. He will recount his tech startup experiences to illustrate how entrepreneurs gather support and funding to launch and drive adoption in markets.

Understand how a Business Degree can jumpstart your career, including being an entrepreneur. Also, learn how to overcome the limited bandwidth of start-ups, define “hands-on” experiences and discover whether “Stability” or “Challenges” suits your business acumen better.

Fireside Chat topics
  • What are the skillsets and mind-sets you should have?
  • What is the ‘Perfect Candidate’ to become an entrepreneur?
  • How to overcome the limited bandwidth you have as a start-up?
  • Stability versus Challenges – is this what you want?
  • What is really ‘hands-on’ experience?
