Business and cyber security professionals have reacted to Labor's creation of a 'Coordinator of Cyber Security'.

The Albanese government announced the creation of the position, which will be supported by a new National Office for Cyber Security, at their Cyber Security Roundtable in Sydney.

Mr McKeller said the issue of cyber threats affected businesses of all sizes, but evidence showed that only one in five small businesses were confident about their own cyber security. “So there is a lot that needs to be done here to really make sure that we are getting up to speed that we’re minimizing that risk.”

“Even topics like insurance, making sure we’ve got affordable, effective insurance coverage so if you are affected you’ve got the ability to respond quickly, to be supported and get your business back up and running. All of these things are absolutely fundamental,” Mr McKeller said.

Current cyber security laws have ‘really narrow’ definitionsCyber Security Minister Clare O’Neil says the problem with current laws in place for cyber security is their “really narrow definition” of what a cyber attack is. “They give the government special powers to manage cyber incidents only during the technical event of the cyber attack,” Ms O’Neil told Sky News Australia. “The technical event in a cyber attack is often over really quickly. “What really matters is the consequence management that occurs afterwards.” Review the definition, change it to have a wide scope & context, and then amend the law. This action should be quick & precise.

Cyber security being dealt with by only one Government body is a ‘risk’National cyber security being dealt with by only one Government body is a “risk”, according to ANU National Security College Senior Fellow Katherine Mansted. “So I don’t think one piece of legislation or one Government body needs to do everything,” she told Sky News Austalia. “In fact that’s probably a risk, putting all of our eggs into one basket. “I think it’s good and that it’s proper that we have different regimes, calibrated to different problem sets, and that engage with different stakeholders so that we can deal with all of the multiple ways in which that the challenges of cybersecurity affect our economy and affect our daily lives.” Inept Clare O'Neill is plainly wrong in what she is saying about cyber security! Senior Fellow at ANU National Security College says so! O'Neill should stick with holding umbrellas for Albanese! Thanks for sharing this with us Thats how they want it. All eggs in one basket.
