Every day our nation is exposed to “more threats” and it’s time to act, says former South Australian Labor Minister Tom Kenyon.
Mr Kenyon said Australia is exposed “by way of cyber attacks and online threats”.
“Our environment has changed. The relatively benign times of the last 30 years have ended, we are now back in a cold war and we refuse to recognise it.
“Australian cyber networks are under attack from hackers and state security agencies and sometimes they are one and the same thing.
“Australian organisations need to recognise the new reality and adapt – refusing to do so is letting the country down.
