The crucial information from the federal government on cybersecurity is that we all have to have to be incredibly frightened — so afraid that we never will need to know much too substantially about what added powers are to be offered to safety businesses to “protect” Australians.

Just after months of hold off, yesterday the governing administration eventually released its new cybersecurity strategy, designed by the Department of Dwelling Affairs.

The Office of Home Affairs alone has a shocking history on cybersecurity: it has been frequently criticised above many decades by both equally the Australian Nationwide Audit Office environment and parliament’s Joint Committee of General public Accounts and Audit for failing to comply with the Australian Signals Directorate’s (ASD) cybersecurity mitigation procedures.
