Australia’s Cyber Security Strategy summarises it best — to be competitive, businesses need to be online. But this also brings risks. Australia is increasingly a target for cybercrime. Malicious cyber activities are wide ranging. They include activities designed to compromise the confidentiality, integrity or availability of computer networks and ICT systems, or the data that is on them.
With data theft and compromise of IT systems increasingly on the rise, there are reputational, financial, and legal risks for businesses who fall victim to such crimes.
Managing a business’ cyber security affairs requires a multifaceted approach, which includes sound legal advice and representation. Our team is experienced in interpreting Australia’s privacy laws and regulations and how they apply to businesses that have undergone a data breach.
