On behalf of the Safety Institute of Australia and the Australian Computer Society, we invite you to join us for an informative webinar at 2.30pm (AEST) on Tuesday 8 May 2018  titled: The OHS Professional and Cyber Security​.

Cyber security has become increasingly important for companies and Boards and this year, cyber represents two of the top five risk in the World Economic Forum’s Global Risk Report. Australia, has responded to this increasing concern, in part, by moving from a voluntary to a mandatory breach notification regime. The guidance to the updated regulations provide examples that now unambiguously link data disclosure to financial, physical, psychological and emotional harm.

Our ever increasing reliance on bio-mechanics, automation, artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things has also led to greater awareness of the impact that accidental or malicious cyber events could have on safety critical systems and the economies and people that rely on them.


  • Why has cyber security become relevant for the OHS professional? How is “cyber security” relevant to “health and safety”
  • We now have to tell - privacy and mandatory breach reporting
  • What are the other regulations and requirements (in Australia)
  • What is contemporary practice, focusing on safety critical systems
  • What specialist advise do I need and where can get it?

All webinars will be recorded and distributed to registered attendees 3-4 days after the event.
