Bosses embrace security strategy

Employers have welcomed the National Security Strategy, released by Prime Minister Julia Gillard last week.

The establishment of the Australian Cyber Security Centre forms part of the strategy.
The centre will analyse and lead the government’s response to cyber threats, work with industry to protect networks and systems, and provide advice and support in countering cyber threats.

Last year more than five million Australians fell victim to cyber crime, which cost the economy $1.65 billion.

Peter Anderson, CEO the ACCI, agrees with the business risks identified in the strategy and its commitment to partnering with the private sector on security threats and mitigation.

“This is especially critical with cyber security, where the private sector already invests substantially in countering organised criminal activity,” he said in a media statement.

Innes Willox, CEO of Ai Group, says the national security strategy is timely in securing the safety of all Australians.

“This is the fundamental role for government in a world which continues to face terrorist and cyber threats,” he said in a media statement.
