Victorian Chamber welcomes strategy to protect from cyber crime

The Victorian Chamber of Commerce and Industry 2 mins read

The Victorian Chamber of Commerce and Industry commends the Federal Government's commitment to enhancing national cyber security through its recently unveiled 2023-2030 Australian Cyber Security Strategy.

As a cyber advocacy leader, the Victorian Chamber has provided detailed industry insights to the Federal Government promoting robust cyber security measures. We are pleased to announce our alignment with the federal strategy, which has embraced 17 out of 24 policy ideas from our own Cyber Security and Scams Policy Position, either partially or in full.

These include our top three game-changers of establishing Cyber Health Clinics with one-on-one support to uplift business cyber security; a Cyber Safe Score (voluntary labelling scheme for consumer-grade smart devices); and an apprenticeship training model to professionalise Australia’s domestic cyber workforce.

The strategic congruence between the Victorian Chamber's policy position and the federal strategy reflects a unified commitment to fortify the nation's digital resilience against evolving cyber threats. With a shared vision for a secure digital landscape, both entities aim to safeguard businesses and individuals from the increasing complexities of cyber threats.

The Victorian Chamber remains committed to collaborating with the Federal Government and stakeholders to strengthen Australia's cyber security posture.

To be attributed to Victorian Chamber of Commerce and Industry Chief Executive Paul Guerra:

“The threat of cyber crime is a massive concern for our members, so the Victorian Chamber is pleased that the Federal Government has set out a strategy to bolster our collective defences.

“We commend the Federal Government’s Cyber Security Strategy, and we are delighted that many of the initiatives align with the Victorian Chamber’s Policy which was released in September this year. Our Policy was a result of strong engagement with Victorian businesses from small, medium and large enterprises.

“We look forward to seeing the operational detail of the strategy, and how the Victorian Chamber will be engaged to implement programs, campaigns and projects for Victorian businesses to help Australia become the most cyber secure nation by 2030.”

Time to honour Peta Murphy and commit to real gambling reforms – Australian voters want end to the carnage caused by gambling that adds to cost of living pain

The voters of Dunkley have honoured Peta Murphy’s legacy by electing a Labor candidate, now it’s time for the Albanese Government to do the same and accept all of the recommendations of the online gambling inquiry that she fought so hard to deliver, even in her last days. “Certainly, the cost of living was a critical issue in this by-election but so was the white-hot anger in the community about the unchecked power of the gambling industry and the damage it is causing families, especially those doing it tough who are so cynically targeted by gambling companies,” the Alliance for…

Fed Govt must strengthen limp NT online gambling laws – New NT laws fail to protect communities from rapacious foreign operators

The Federal Government should step in to stop the Northern Territory government continuing to offer a tax haven to multi-billion-dollar foreign online gambling operators. It makes no sense for the Northern Territory government to effectively be the online gambling regulator for the nation. The chief executive of the Alliance for Gambling Reform, Carol Bennett, said that poor regulation by the Northern Territory government is a key reason adults and young people across Australia are being bombarded by online gambling advertising. The NT government has put a Bill to parliament, the Racing and Wagering Bill 2024, that seeks to make changes…
