Bioinformatics is the use of information technology in biotechnology for data storage, data warehousing and DNA sequence analysis. Bioinformatics is an interdisciplinary field that develops and enhances methods for storing, retrieving, organizing, and analyzing biological data.
Growth in bioinformatics applications such as drug development and analysis, forensic analysis, and resistance to antibiotics is the main driver behind the growth of the global bioinformatics market. In addition, the development of new customized pharmaceuticals and clinical diagnostics and integrated proteomics and genomics research systems are other elements expected to drive growth in the global bioinformatics market.
However, the shortage of experts in bioinformatics is a major factor impeding the growth of the global bioinformatics market. In addition, lack of adequate infrastructure and high costs in developing countries is another challenge that hampers the growth of the global bioinformatics market.
The North American market dominates the global bioinformatics market and has the largest market share in terms of sales compared to other markets. This is due to well-developed applications such as microbial genomics, gene therapy, waste disposal and climate change research. The European market is the second largest contributor to the global bioinformatics market, with Asia Pacific markets, Latin America and the Middle East and Africa respectively.
Email fraud is nothing new, but online criminals have become ever more-effective at spoofing their identities to trick employees into sending them money. The Australian Centre for Cyber Security (ACSC) recorded losses of over $20M to business email compromise (BEC) attacks last year alone, up 230 percent over the previous year – and the full amount is certain to be much larger.

No matter how robust your security, or how diligent your employees, network credentials are a free pass for cybercriminals. This is mostly because employees are relied upon for their own password management. And with more than 4.8 billion sets of stolen credentials said to be available online, odds are that at least a few of your employees’ user IDs and passwords are just waiting to be used by unscrupulous outsiders. Are you ready to stop them?

Cyber resilience will be particularly important as Australian organisations face increased pressure to quickly detect, respond to, and manage the repercussions of breaches in the wake of 2018’s Notifiable Data Breaches (NDB) scheme.
