Cybersecurity has been thrust into the spotlight in Australia in recent months. The Optus and Medibank hacks among others have demonstrated the devastating impact a data breach can have.

These high-profile breaches also underline the importance for all organisations in ensuring they have best-practice cybersecurity protections in place.

It is fortunate that Australia has a wealth of world-class cybersecurity companies ready to help. The sector has been growing rapidly in recent years and is only set to continue.

This has been signaled at the federal level too, with the new Labor government quickly reinstating the position of Minister for Cybersecurity, with Clare O’Neil stepping into the role.
