Symantec CEO Greg Clark announced as CeBIT Australia’s opening cyber security keynote
CeBIT Australia has announced Symantec CEO, Greg Clark, as the first international keynote speaker for Asia Pacific’s largest and longest running B2B technology exhibition returning to Sydney’s International Convention Centre (ICC), 15-17 May 2018.
As a global leader in cyber security software, Symantec plays a critical role in helping protect the world against rising levels of cybercrime and insider threats. In the last 12 months alone, the company has been at the forefront of defending people against attacks like WannaCry, Petya and others.

“Protecting our homes, identities and families is now of concern to all citizens. As we help people embark on this unfamiliar terrain, I look forward to addressing the approach we’re taking to give Australians the tools they need to help protect their entire digital lives at CeBIT Australia 2018,” said Clark.
