Victoria METS Regional Cyber Roadshow - BENDIGO

The Victoria METS Export Hub is hosting a Regional Cyber Roadshow in August and September 2022.


Are you connected into a mining supply chain – through provision of services or supply of products?

If so, you will need to prove your cybersecurity credentials to remain (or become) a trusted supplier and partner.

Organisations of all sizes are facing unprecedented cybersecurity threats, with an astounding 300,000 (Web Arx Security) pieces of new malware created every day.  The approximately 54% (EY, Information Security Survey) of companies in the resources and energy sector that experienced a cyber attack in 2021 alone, suffered compromised data, loss of income, business disruption and reputational damage.

The Victoria METS Export Hub is proud to present a workshop aimed at giving Regional Victorian companies the knowledge they need to become cyber ready.  You’re invited to join us for a face-to-face workshop at which you will get practical, relevant and immediately implementable information.

This workshop, presented by Australia’s first Cyber Readiness Institute certified Cyber Readiness Coach, focusses on the human element of cybersecurity and how to change behaviour.


Collins Rex is the Victorian METS Export Hub Lead. She is also Australia’s first Cyber Readiness Institute Certified Cyber Readiness Coach.

Collins is an international business expert, with over 30 years of marketing and communications, and business training experience.  A self-confessed “AI tragic”, Collins believes fundamentally in the ability of digitalisation to enable SMEs to take their place on the global stage.

She’s a member of the World Customs Organisation (WCO) eCommerce Working Group, she’s on the International Advisory Board for the Netherlands-based eCommerce Foundation, and she’s a Director with the Global Trade Professionals Alliance.  She’s the Chief Judge of the Australian Information Industry Association’s iAwards, and an International Head Judge for APICTA, the Asia Pacific ICT Alliance Awards.
