Australian Businesses Urged to Assess their Cyber Security
According to Director General Paul O'Sullivan of the ASIO (Australian Security Intelligence Organization) on May 22, 2008, with businesses and government units widely using the Internet, state agencies are presented with reasonably large opportunities to gain clandestine access to protected database.
Mr. O'Sullivan noted that various non-state players like criminals, hackers and similar foreign entities, working as representatives of networks, states, or groups or acting independently, are occupied in a wide range of wicked cyber activities. These activities could be for profit, to test vulnerabilities, obtain sensitive information, or to cause harm to a user's computer and data. Whatever be the purpose, these criminals are targeting government and business alike.
