A six-month review of Australia’s cybersecurity defences will be undertaken to identify the strengths and weaknesses of the nation’s cybersecurity strategy, prime minister Tony Abbott has announced.
Speaking at the launch of the Australian Cyber Security Centre (ACSC) in Canberra today, Abbott said it was high time for a review as the online security posture had changed significantly in the six years since the last review of the country’s defences.
That review led to the creation of the ACSC, which is encapsulated within ASIO’s new headquarters and was the subject of a significant funding commitment by former PM Julia Gillard when she committed $1.46 billion to the creation of the centre in January 2013.
