Security in Government Conference 2015


The National Security Resilience Policy Division, part of the Australian Attorney-General's Department, hosted the 27th Security in Government (SIG) conference at the National Convention Centre, Canberra from 31 August to 2 September 2015.

The SIG conference began in 1987 as a meeting of agency security advisers focusing on protective security issues. Since its inception, attendance at the conference has enabled delegates to engage with public and private sector security experts from a diverse range of fields. The extensive trade exhibition attached to the conference features over ninety security-related service providers who work closely with both the government and private sector to provide cutting-edge solutions to protective security issues.


The SIG conference is targeted at senior executives responsible for managing security in agencies, officers from all levels of government who contribute to the development of security capability and response, security practitioners from the public and private sectors who provide services to government and critical infrastructure providers in the following areas:

  • physical security
  • personnel security
  • information security
  • information and communications technology
  • government policy.

Personnel from other areas who should attend include: private sector service and technology professionals with responsibility for critical infrastructure resilience, and who engage with government and the public sector in the security field; and undergraduate and post-graduate students undertaking studies in security policy, capability development, incident response and policing.
