20th Annual AusCERT Cyber Security Conference

The AusCERT Conference is the oldest information security conference in Australia and this year was extra special as they celebrated the 20th anniversary. I was honoured to be the sole designer on this project for the second year running. The conference was a little different this year and evolved to a hybrid format due to ongoing covid restrictions so my challenge was to adapt the brand to function in both a virtual and in-person context.

Over the course of 8 months, I designed the conference theme and rolled it out conference collateral, including: website, stationary, merchandise, social media marketing, banners & booths, and online portal.

SOARing with Cyber

The theme of the conference was SOAR (Security Orchestration, Automation, and Response); this refers to a collection of software solutions and tools that allow organisations to streamline security operations.

This was a tough one to translate to a brand, however AusCERT were keen to incorporate the idea of ‘soaring’ and ‘moving forward’. The geometric birds were the perfect motif to bring this idea to life while also ensuring the visuals appealed to the cyber security enthusiasts.

As is tradition each year, this aesthetic also provided a great opportunity to sneak some bird-themed easter eggs amongst the website code for the regular conference-goers to hunt down.
