Half-Yearly Cyber Wrap Up07 June 2023
In 2021-2022 year alone, one cybercrime was reported to the Australian Cyber Security Centre every seven minutes on average, compared to one report every 10 minutes in 2019-2020. Cybercrimes are becoming a daily occurrence, with the prevalence of cybercrimes growing at a steady rate.
These statistics are the backdrop to our half-yearly cyber wrap up, aimed at keeping you at the forefront of issues and legislative changes and impacts in the fast-paced world of cyber. In this update, we:
