Cyber Security Uncut

Cyber security, shaping up to be an election issue?

April 29, 2022

Hosts Major General (Ret’d) Marcus Thompson and Phil Tarrant unpack the latest in cyber security policy, and how cyber is shaping up to become an election issue.

The pair begins by analysing the impact of the recent Solomon Islands-China agreement on Australian security, assessing the government and opposition’s policies around cyber security including Project REDSPICE.

The podcast continues with an analysis into whether these policies are achievable in their stated time frame, casting doubt on whether there is a sufficient flow of cyber security graduates to fill a large-scale expansion in the cyber security industry.

The pair wraps up by discussing the latest cyber security news, including recent data showing a fourfold increase in phishing attacks while Phil Tarrant shares insight on how his team seeks to continuously improve their cyber security protocols.
