Description

While NetSafe provides a coherent and consistent message on Internet security for the small
business and home user market, no such organisation within New Zealand is targeting technical
implementers and business leaders.

A range of security groups and events exist within New Zealand that can provide elements of this
awareness and knowledge sharing, however these groups can appear closed or foreign to those new
to information security or those not directly involved within its implementation.

Rather than competing with individual information security interest groups, this awareness
programme would provide coordination between them. Providing a coherent, linking dialog
between each group and how their intended audience would increase the membership and interest
in groups such as OWASP and ISACA.

For business leaders and existing professionals, this initiative would be an introduction and gateway
to the range of groups and events available. It would provide fundamental knowledge, introductions
to suitable groups and networking opportunities between implementers and business leaders in the
same position or facing the same challenges.
