How Australia is Fighting Cyber Crime


The new International Cyber Engagement Strategy emphasizes the incentive of trade but it was introduced with a reminder that Australia has enough cyber weapons. The Australian government has announced that there will be penalty for states which break international norms in cyber space and it is ready to take 'military action' to combat malicious cyber attacks.


Australia has made it clear that it will "discourage and react to undesirable behavior in cyberspace" as a part of its International Cyber Engagement Strategy, which was launched by Julie Bishop, Foreign Minister, in Sydney on Wednesday. The paper with $10 Mn funding tries to improve the behavior of nation in cyberspace.


This contains supporting 'proportionate' counteraction taken by victims of malicious cyber attack in another country. Skynews.com posted on October 4th, 2017, quoting a criticism of Dr. Suelette Dreyfus, a cyber security expert, as saying "new $10 Million strategy by government is problematic due to lack of public consultation."


Other incidents like Equifax breach exposing the personal credentials of 143 million people, concerns about the possible impact of the EU's General Data Protection Regulation and the intimidating introduction of mandated data breach notification in Australia have all sharpened the focus on cyber security. Spending on information security products throughout the world is estimated to reach $86.4 Bn this year and $93 Bn by 2018.


120 specialists of Cambell team develop security services for customers by leveraging open source security software and Microsoft Azure making the services more affordable. As per the strategy, Australia will also look for producing architecture to cooperate between allies to respond to "unacceptable behavior in cyberspace" rapidly and within international laws.


The strategy states that Australia already engages in cyber policy and cyber security meetings with countries like China, Canada, Indonesia, India, New Zealand, Republic of Korea, United Kingdom, United States and Japan. The strategy seeks "more openness" from other states about using military offensive cyber capabilities.
