Assistant Defence Minister Andrew Hastie has stressed it is “so important” for Australians to report ransomware attacks and scams to the Australian Cyber Security Centre to prevent these incidents from further occurring.

“Really important, because that builds out a threat picture, we can understand what’s going on, and we can send out the alerts, which then equips people and prevents them from clicking on things,” Mr Hastie said.

“These people are very sophisticated in the way they do these things, and it’s just constantly evolving.

“And that’s why we need these regular updates.”
