Pulse: Cyber security

22 January 2018

When it comes to cyber security it can be hard to separate the important from the sensational. Through regular bulletins, we do the hard yards so that you can keep your finger on the pulse with the latest cyber security trends, incidents, legal issues and regulatory activity. Plus, we'll make sure that you have a good cyber story to tell at your next dinner party.

In this issue, we shine a light on ransomware – what it is, how it works, how much it costs, the continuing effects of recent attacks, and the key considerations to keep in mind when deciding whether to concede to a ransomware hacker's demands. We also look at how data breaches might trigger a listed company's continuous disclosure obligations, the OAIC's investigation into Precedent Communications, and the Australian Cyber Security Centre's 2017 Threat Report.

We'd love to hear from you, so please get in touch if you'd like to know more about anything in this edition of Pulse, or if there's a topic that you’d like us to cover in the future.
