A new report warns Australia is not adequately prepared for cyber war, with the nation “badly lagging” behind overseas counterparts and the Defence Force also at risk.
- Australian government, civilian cyber safety behind China and US, report says.
- Defence force weapons systems “vulnerable”.
- Government slammed for “lack of commitment” towards military cyber safety.
- Federal Government to release defence white paper by mid-2016.
Research by the Australian Centre for Cyber Security (ACCS) said Australian government and civilian organisations were well behind China and the United States, which have gone to great lengths to prepare themselves.
