Are you grappling with how to best implement the Victorian Protective Data Security Standards Framework at your utility? At Secure Utilities, you’ll learn from an expert about the cultural change that needs to take place to effectively implement this framework.

zoran-savanovic-smZoran Savanovic is an expert at implementing data security frameworks across a range of organisations, and at Secure Utilities, the Business Technology Services Operations Manager at South East Water will provide insight into how his organisation is implementing – and benefiting – from the recently published Victorian Protective Data Security Standards Framework (VPDSSF).

An accomplished senior professional with twenty-seven years of corporate IT experience, Zoran has led a number of major national and international IT integration and transformation programmes and enterprise level projects, and has held senior positions in information security consultancies.

Having implemented IT security frameworks for various different organisations, Mr Savanovic possesses vast experience in managing organisational information security programs to obtain accreditations and ISO certification.

Mr Savanovic’s presentation, ‘Security considerations for a Victorian water utility’, will discuss the VPDSSF, which establishes 18 mandatory requirements for protecting public sector data and preparing for governance in the areas of information, personnel, ICT and physical security.

The standards reflect national and international approaches to security but are tailored to the Victorian government environment, focusing on the security of information. They aim to take a risk management approach so that government business practices are effective, safe and secure.

What steps have you taken to protect your data? Our event, Secure Utilities, to be held at the Rendezvous Hotel in Melbourne on 23 March 2017, will ensure your utility keeps up with the latest thinking and technology to keep its assets and data safe.
