Could Australia Defend Itself From Leakware Attacks?

In recent weeks, South Africa’s biggest city Johannesburg faced an attack by a group called Shadow Kill Hackers. This is the second time in months that the city’s security and data was attacked. What’s concerning is the unique way this attack happened. 

It makes many wonder how Australia could defend itself from similar attacks – this year alone, several organisations including the Australian National University suffered from data breaches. Maybe it’s time to revise our cybersecurity defences to better protect citizens’ data.

To talk more about ransomware and the threat of hackers, The Daily was joined by Dr Roberto Musotto, Research Fellow in Cyber Security and Law from Edith Cowan University.
