I have had good luck reaching non-security audiences by *going to them* 
in terms of outreach. Developer conferences like JavaOne, RailsConf or a 
one of the many .NET conferences 
http://blog.adeccousa.com/top-conferences-for-net-developers/. Also 
consider meetup groups for developers, dev centric maker spaces, or 
language specific user groups.

Bring your Sydney security magic to them!

Aloha and G'day,
