Older Australians understand the role of sharing personal data in today’s Internet economy better than millennials and are less comfortable with exchanging personal data with companies as a result, according to new research designed to gauge changing attitudes towards data privacy.
Australians are more fastidious than those in other countries about separating work and personal passwords – and more careful than many in protecting sensitive data like healthcare accounts – but use of secure passwords remains uncommon, according to new figures, and high rates of password reuse suggest that we still aren’t learning to protect sensitive information right.
Concerns over the security of companies’ development cultures were validated for an Australian cybersecurity specialist after a recent global scan of GitHub projects identified more than 200,000 servers where developers had left hardcoded passwords and other sensitive information in publicly available source code.
No extortion, shake downs, or duress, Uber says in new bug bounty program.
As users what we want is to share more and have more privacy. It is through this prisoner dilemma that over this weekend Digi.me, ID Exchange and Alibaba Cloud joined forces to bring the power of personal data and private sharing to communities in regional NSW by delivering the digi.spark hackathon hosted at UTS as part of New South Wales Spark Festival.
CSO & Enex Testlab join forces to deliver a first class IT Security event in Sydney's Four Seasons Hotel.
CIOs will be familiar with the dilemma. There are so many cloud options out there now – how do you know which is best for your business? How can you ensure you are delivering services that are both customer-centric and business-aligned?
Recent security incidents and the introduction of new data breach legislation across Australia and Europe are driving greater awareness around the need for cybersecurity best practices.
Security professionals are used to seeing a high turnover of threats, with new vulnerabilities disclosed weekly and regular rounds of patches to contend with.
Data breaches have come to be expected. With Australia’s new mandatory data breach notification laws now in place, the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner (OAIC) was informed of 63 breaches occurring within the first six weeks of operation.
During a DDoS attack, time can be your biggest enemy. Lost seconds can have a huge impact on whether you are successful in mitigating an attack in time, or failure could mean costly network downtime. Anything that accelerates your Mean Time to Detect (MTTD) and Mean Time to Respond (MTTR) to an attack provides you with a clear advantage.
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.
