Cyberattack Announcement

Friday morning, the government announced that the country is under a state-based cyber attack. We invited Dane Meah, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Infrotrust, on to the show to provide some light with the announcement. He discussed what is it about and if we should worry or not.

“Although the Prime Minister’s announcement this morning may seem alarming to some, it is worth noting that many Australian businesses in recent years have doubled down and made significant efforts to mature their cyber resilience and protect themselves against cyber-attacks.

“However, this does serve as a reminder to Australian organisations and government agencies that cyber security must remain a key focus, often security projects are one of the first to be scaled back during a recession and this could potentially cause even more damage to the Australian economy if we see businesses start to fall victim to these attacks.”
