Its aim is to facilitate networking and collaboration between the local cyber security community and business in Australia and overseas.
We have pockets of our ecosystem that are actually very good. Incredible research, some great outcomes coming out of some smaller firms, but there's so many gaps in the ecosystem.
How do you get customer one? On arrival at the network last year, Davies said he was told there were only 15 Australian cyber security firms. At last count, there are with a huge breadth of expertise.
One of their biggest challenges was getting a foot in the door. Something businesses could help with, Davies said.
Think about what you would need to do to encourage an Australian firm, to at least look at their idea. Most of these start-ups and scale-ups they just want someone to give them feedback.
If you think about the problem you face. I can guarantee you there is a firm in this segment worthy of you at least having a conversation," Davies said.
I just want you to develop a way to ensure they're allowed in the room. That's all I ask," he added.
The centre was working towards building a 'pool culture' where business security needs could be matched with Australian solutions. We still think that collaboration is standing round and having a beer," Davies said.
