Over recent years, there has been significant growth in the number and severity of cyber attacks around the world. The heightened risk of a cyber attack is recognised as a systemic and operational concern by local and international regulators. There are various approaches being adopted globally – some legislation driven and others voluntary.
While cyber attacks occur in every sector of the economy, there is particular emphasis and focus on the financial sector, because the risks are higher. As new technologies emerge, Australian businesses face a range of cyber risks, both external threats and internal vulnerabilities that continue to evolve over time.
Doing nothing is therefore not an option. As attacks become more targeted and more sophisticated, cyber resilience has to be monitored and maintained, and response times have to become faster organisation and industry wide.
