Information Security ANZ July 2016


The Australian prime minister confirmed that the Bureau of Meteorology had been hacked last year. Analysts and security specialists point out that if a major Government installation is vulnerable, many enterprise IT operations should consider themselves at risk.

There are recommendations that the leading 100 Australian companies participate in a security health check which have bee warmly welcomed - though there are calls for that to be extended given the long supply chains which are a common feature of modern enterprise.

Security can be broken by the weakest link in the chain - which has many analysts recommending that all organisations step up and monitor their systems rigorously and regularly - and the May Budget revealed grants for small business which wish to conduct security audits while a $47.3m online threat sharing portal will be established to support the fight against online attacks.
