New National Cyber Security Strategy will strengthen Australia’s resilience

RMIT University < 1 mins read

A cyber security expert is available to talk to media about the Australia’s new 2023–2030 National Cyber Security Strategy, which was handed down today. 

Professor Matthew Warren, Director of the RMIT Centre for Cyber Security Research and Innovation  

Topics: cyber security, cyber crime and threats, Australian Cyber Security Strategy 

Over ten years ago Australia introduced its first National Security Strategy. Since then, the scale and scope of the problems it was designed to address have increased, but we have seen subsequent Australian governments deal with this very complex problem. 

The new National Cyber Security Strategy highlights several key changes and investments that aim to: 

  • support small and medium businesses to deal with cyber incidents 
  • strengthen critical infrastructure and enhance government cyber security 
  • activate regional and global cyber resilience initiatives 
  • protect and respond against ransomware attacks. 

The strategy demonstrates the government recognises the importance of protecting all of Australia from critical infrastructure to small businesses and citizens.  

It’s great they have acknowledged the key role that universities have in contributing to sovereign capability development and innovation, especially through research. 

We are living in the new cyber normal. This strategy is a key step in helping to protect Australia in the future against the wide range of cyber threats that Australia faces. 

Unlike previous national cyber security strategies, this strategy clearly defines what success looks like and the three phases of implementation needed to get to a successful outcome. 

Professor Matthew Warren is a researcher in the areas of cyber security and critical infrastructure.

Australians in the dark on how companies track and target them, new report shows

A new report by the Consumer Policy Research Centre (CPRC) and UNSW Sydney reveals Australian consumers don’t understand how companies – including data brokers – track, target, and profile them using their personal information. The report includes findings from a survey by CPRC of 1,000 Australians about their understanding of privacy terms and attitudes to businesses collecting and sharing their personal information. The survey shows: Australians do not feel in control of their personal information. More than 70% believe they have very little or no control over what personal information online businesses share with other businesses. Only a third feel…
