G20 raises the hack level, are you protected?
As the Brisbane hosted G20 summit looms, so do the cyber-attack threats. It's making for a wild scramble as spy agencies attempt to extend warnings to corporate Australia.
The Australian Signals Directorate (ASD) cautions the target that the Australian held G20 places upon local businesses, as a “real and persistent threat”.
The ASD has also issued a list of advice to help businesses avoid falling victim to hacking threats. They recommend that users be wary of scams such as usb’s containing spyware and bugs, to avoid using public wi-fi networks and also be cautious when exchanging information via any web based service.
More of the ASD’s recommended points can be found here.
