Have your say and comment below.Australia''s cyber bureaucracy appears to have been hard at work during the lockdown and has come up with what it calls a Digital Trust Report, the ultimate example of tripe about the cyber security industry, one that offers statistics galore, but with no explanation of how they have been calculated or what use they are.
The goal of the software is to help business owners easily protect themselves and their businesses, despite any potential gaps in digital skills or tech savviness. The SMB market has not been easy to protect until now, and business owners have so many issues to deal with they often wait until it is too late, losing all their customer data or even cash in a cyber attack, said CEO Jamie Akhtar. We take all the effort out from a business becoming secure, so it s not as painful, time consuming, or as expensive as one might think. Another main focus of the software is to help these businesses meet national standards, such as the Cyber Essentials Certification, which is recommended by the Information Commissioner ''s Office and Federation for Small Businesses and required of any suppliers to central and local governments.

"The COVID 19 pandemic may expose and intensify strategic competition among countries intending to create international and regional orders more preferable to themselves and to expand their influence, " the report said. "We need to closely watch their move with serious concern affecting the national security.

He spoke on the condition of anonymity citing department rules.The annual report said China has relentlessly pushed to change the status quo in the North Asian seas, including sending 3,000 ton class government vessels into Japanese waters around Japan controlled disputed East China Sea islands called Senkaku in Japanese. Beijing also claim the islands and call them the Diaoyu.The report also cited North Korea ''s continued development of its nuclear and other weapons program.
