Each year Cisco continually looks to improve the customer experience at our biggest technology event in the Southern Hemisphere – Cisco Live Melbourne. This year we had more than 7,200+ people attending Cisco Live as well as over 6,800+ virtual attendees watching our live streamed sessions online.
From a cybersecurity perspective, Cisco Live is evolving into one of the largest security conferences in Asia Pacific. With more and more attendees participating in the cybersecurity focused sessions. We also drive the ‘Cybersecurity Experience’ concurrently at Cisco Live, which involves four days of educating customers, partners, press and analysts on the latest developments in security. For 2018, the Cybersecurity Experience was bigger and better with the inaugural Cisco Security Customer Awards for Asia Pacific & Japan (APJ); more virtual sessions streamed across the region; plus our flagship Cybersecurity Innovation Day.
Customers recognized for innovating and transforming with security
Held for the first time, the APJ Cisco Security Customer Awards celebrated achievements across five award categories where customers were recognized for effective security operations, as well as innovative security integration and transformation.

Cybersecurity Insights: Playback now live for 50+ sessions
We’re always wanting to educate customers across the region on security. This year’s Cybersecurity Insights broadcast did exactly that, with 40+ security experts sharing their technology, threat, customer and business insights at over 50 virtual sessions streamed live from Melbourne to 3,400 unique viewers across Australia and Asia Pacific.
We have now launched the refreshed Cybersecurity Insights website which has all of the expert sessions available for playback. Some noteworthy sessions include Cathy Huang from analyst firm IDC sharing her industry insights on breach readiness across Asia Pacific; an interview with Paul Ward from the world’s largest police organization, INTERPOL, on combating cybercrime; as well as Cisco’s Nick Biasini, threat researcher from Talos on current threat intelligence and cyberattacks. There are also Tech Talk sessions covering what’s new from Cisco in network, endpoint and cloud security.
Cybersecurity Innovation Day
Cisco Live is all about education, networking, and fun. Our Cybersecurity Innovation Day for customers was no different. This year in Melbourne, we had over 100 customers attend an action packed program covering the latest from Cisco Security Engineering, our Security & Trust Organization, Talos threat research, and cybersecurity experts covering our integrated solutions across network security, content security, as well as securing the data center.
It was all about cybersecurity down under. Join us for Cisco Live in 2019.
