Webinar: Leveraging Your SOCI Obligations For Increased Operational Resilience

Together with KPMG, we invite you to the next Kinatico Konnects webinar where our panel of experts and leaders in regulatory tech will answer questions from employers embedding a risk-based approach in meeting their obligations under the Security of Critical Infrastructure Act 2018 (SOCI Act).

The SOCI Act requires owners and operators of critical infrastructure to establish and maintain a critical infrastructure risk management program to identify, assess and manage security risks.

Meet the Panel:

  • Gregory Miller, Government Cyber and Critical Infrastructure Lead Partner, Consulting, KPMG Australia
  • Stefanie Cordina, Director Consulting, KPMG Australia
  • Issa Maimoun, Senior Client Executive, Kinatico
  • Moderated By: Serina Gill, Head of Marketing, Kinatico

During the webinar, Cordina, Miller, and Maimoun will answer your questions and discuss how to identify and manage your highest risks and embed a critical infrastructure risk management program for ongoing operational resilience. They will also explore how the Act can be used to market a business’ difference against competitors, best practice for identifying critical workers, as well as the latest trends in people-based solutions and leveraging smart technology to create better workforce management.

“We are excited to be partnering with KPMG to host this webinar on compliance with the SOCI Act,” said Issa Maimoun, Senior Client Executive, Kinatico. “The Act is a critical step forward in protecting our critical infrastructure, but it requires businesses to have a plan in place for managing their critical workers. This webinar will help employers understand the requirements and create a plan to ensure they are in compliance.”
