SECURITY MANAGEMENT


09:10 INTERNATIONAL KEYNOTE: Security Awareness - Better Understand How Human Factors Impact Security

In today's world, security cannot be the sole responsibility of the government or private security officers. There is a need to integrate a security awareness culture throughout an organization and impacted communities. Technology is also not the sole solution. It is essential to better understand the human factors that impact security. By understanding the internal and external context of managing security related risks and instilling an awareness that security is everyone's responsibility, organizations, communities and societies can enhance their security and resilience capacity to better address undesirable events

COUNTER-TERRORISM


10:50 Following the money: Does demarcation between money laundering, terrorism financing and revenue protection matter anymore?

Financial intelligence units have traditionally defined their operations as anti money laundering, counter terrorism financing or revenue protection missions based on client set, target, and methodology. But like cyber, are we now seeing such synergy against individual missions that they distort? Are we addressing a 21st century environment with the tools and context of the 20th century? This session will benchmark several case studies to explore if the AML/CTF demarcation remains appropriate and how this can be addressed.

Dr John Moss, National Manager - Intelligence, AUSTRAC


11:20 A comprehensive counter-terrorism strategy for Australia

The day-to-day focus for most governments is on matters seemingly unrelated to terrorism and counterterrorism. But when terrorist attacks occur, the government’s attention will be focused on nothing else. Australia will continue to experience terrorist attacks and plots, and be affected by terrorism overseas. Jacinta Carroll will argue the need for a comprehensive strategic framework to guide Australia’s approach to counter-terrorism, and a recasting of Australia’s international approach to deal with the continuing threat of terrorism.

Jacinta Carroll, Head, Counter Terrorism Policy Centre, Australian Strategic Policy Institute
