Australia Critical Infrastructure Protection: A Twenty-Year Journey

Abstract:

The aim of the paper is to describe Australia’s national Cyber Security strategy development since the late 1990s to the 2020s. A common theme is that the management of Australia’s commercial critical infrastructure has presented ongoing challenges to industry and the government. A key issue of the Australian situation is that that the majority of critical infrastructure resides under the control of the business sector and not under direct government control. The paper also describes the new Cyber Security critical infrastructure issues associated with the COVID-19 situation.
