The Australian Prime Minister, Malcolm Turnbull, recently warned that all Australians should be concerned about the threat of a cyber-attack. Mr Turnbull described cyber warfare as the new frontier, with families, governments and businesses equally at risk.
From a public perspective, there is a greater expectation placed on the government to ensure that the networks used by their citizens (to provide sensitive information) are secure and protected from cyber-attacks. Similarly, national security remains a critical requirement for governments.
The Prime Minister is right to declare cyber warfare as the new frontier; especially for governments.
