Ports Australia wishes to correct recent media reports that are stating that Australian ports have shut down due to a cybersecurity attack. We want to clarify this information is entirely inaccurate.
The Ports Australia Business and Operations Conference is back after a short hiatus. The 2023 BizOps Conference will be the second iteration held by Ports Australia, and we look forward to maintaining a two year cycle going forward. The 2023 theme is The Next Wave, as we all seek to understand and capture innovation both domestically and abroad, and Ports Australia aims to bring people together to share these business and operational improvements. Together we will explore how a range of issues such as cybersecurity, automation, digitisation, and sustainability and environmental concerns will play a role in the industry’s future operations. Through keynote speeches, panel discussions, and networking opportunities, participants will explore the latest trends and strategies for success in this dynamic field. The conference will also highlight emerging technologies and best practices that can help port professionals stay ahead of the curve and lead the industry into the future.Download Full Agenda
