  • Impact of cyber crime 
  • Preventing online fraud and deception
  • Detecting cyber crime 

The following can be attributed to Professor Phair:

“Year on year, the Australian Signals Directorate has received another substantial increase in reports of cyber crime. This has been a consistent pattern for a number of years now and will continue to increase until Australian organisations start putting more effort into cyber security and the risk management of their information assets.

“The cost of these cyber attacks is also increasing, resulting in greater harm to businesses and individuals. Cyber crime remains one of the biggest threats to Australian organisations as cyber criminals continually adapt their tools and techniques for greater success.

“Australia needs more tertiary qualified cybersecurity professionals working to support the government and the private sector to protect against these increasing cyber threats.”
