Description

Cyber Security | Data Security & Protection | Mandatory Breach Disclosure | GDPR

DATA... Collect it, Use it.... Just PROTECT it!

Many organisations have an appreciation of the cyber threats they face, however most are unclear about the ways in which they’re vulnerable. Cyber crime, online scamming of businesses is up 30%, but its just tip of the iceberg says the ACCC.

90% of organisations are being targeted by cyber criminals on a regular basis! Cyber-attacks are now automated and indiscriminate, exploiting known vulnerabilities rather than targeting specific organisations.

YOU could be be in breach right now and not even be aware!
The Australian Federal Government has mandated that all data or integrity breaches be reported. The European Union has introduced the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the OAIC has published new guidance for Australian Businesses on these requirements.

Opening Address: Why Victoria is growing as a Global Cyber Security Hub!

Philip Dalidakis MP
Minister for Trade and Investment
Minister for Innovation and the Digital Economy

Speech

DATA... from capture to transmission and storage, while still a huge asset also potentially becomes a legal risk or even a liability.

In Australia every minute of every day some 657,770 Gb of data is produced, transmitted and electronically stored.
