Cyber Security is a hot topic in Australia and across the globe, as Governments, corporations and communities seek the right formula to counter current and future threats, while balancing legitimate concerns about privacy and potential risks for innovation and competition.
In 2012, the Parliamentary Joint Committee on Intelligence and Security (PJCIS) examined a package of national security ideas comprising proposals for telecommunications interception reform, telecommunications sector security reform and Australian intelligence community legislation reform. The reform proposals relate to the Telecommunications (Interception and Access) Act 1979, the Telecommunications Act 1997, the Australian Security Intelligence Organisation Act 1979 and the Intelligence Services Act 2001.
Lawful access to telecommunications under the Telecommunications (Interception and Access) Act 1979 and data retention were among the matters that were reviewed.
Whilst industry awaits the Parliamentary Joint Committee’s Report, this forum will discuss cyber security developments both within Australia and globally.
