The LIV recently provided a submission to the Department of Home Affairs' (‘DHA’) consultation on Strengthening Australia’s Cyber Security Regulations and Incentives.  The LIV recognises the need for an overarching framework for cyber security regulation in Australia and supports initiatives which encourage greater involvement from consumers, business owners, and company directors in cyber security risks.
 
Cyber security expertise is often relegated to internal/external information technology (IT) teams, while many consumers rely on an assumption that cyber services and smart devices are sufficiently protected from cyber threats. It is vital to the strength of Australia’s cyber security environment that education is encouraged at all levels of the market, from consumers to company directors, to reduce the siloed nature of cyber security expertise and encourage a level of responsibility and accountability for threats.
