Transnational Serious and Organised Crime: a borderless threat

This two-day program exposes participants to wide-ranging perspectives on Transnational Serious and Organised Crime (TSOC) and its increasingly pervasive impact across the national security environment and into the community more broadly. The program will consider the implications of the emerging intersection between TSOC and national security intelligence, defence, policy and response activities, and will give insight into the critical role played by states and territories in combating the threat of TSOC. It will also provide participants with access to leading experts from across the national security landscape, spanning law enforcement, the intelligence community, think tanks and academia.

Anyone who wants to better understand how TSOC manifests as a national security issue would benefit from attending this program. Participants from inside and outside government are encouraged to nominate. There is no minimum security clearance requirement.

Past presenters for this program include: experts from the Australian Institute of Criminology, Australian Federal Police, Department of Home Affairs and the Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission.
