What our members are saying...
The WINS workshop has been very beneficial for the Australian Federal Police. The opportunity to exchange ideas and network with other security professionals has been for us an unparalleled opportunity for improvement.
... it’s facilitated some excellent, excellent discussions. Some great points have come out, things I never thought about before. And those things are the kind of things I will be implementing.
This is the only forum I’ve been to where you can share real operating experience with other people that are in the same role as you are. And I find it invaluable, as there’s no point in reinventing the wheel – we can take experiences from one another.
