  • Top 10 ANZ IT stories of 2022

    Years of underinvestment in cyber security in Australia has made the country a lucrative target for cyber criminals who created havoc for two well-known companies this year.

    Both Optus and Medibank suffered major data breaches within a span of months, casting the spotlight on the cyber resilience of Australian companies. The spate of attacks has led to calls for a new cyber strategy that aims to turn Australia into a global cyber leader, among other goals.
