A COMPREHENSIVE UNDERSTANDING OF CYBER SECURITY IN YOUR INDUSTRY
The critical infrastructure industry in Australia is facing an increasing number of cyber threats, and the consequences of a successful cyber-attack can be severe. The ACSC's Annual Cyber Threat Report for 2022 highlights the fact that the critical infrastructure industry is a key target for cyber criminals, with attacks on the industry increasing significantly in recent years.
BE CYBER SMART, NOT CYBER SORRY!
Critical infrastructure companies lack cybersecurity preparedness, the ACSC report states that only 25% of the energy sector organisations in Australia have a mature approach to cybersecurity. This leaves a large amount of companies vulnerable to cyber attacks, which can cause significant damage to your operations and reputation.
The increasing sophistication of cyber threat highlights that cyber criminals are using advanced techniques such as supply chain attacks, which target third-party suppliers and vendors to gain access to critical infrastructure systems. These attacks can be difficult to detect and mitigate, making them a significant threat to the industry.

ARE YOU COMPLIANT?
In Australia, critical infrastructure is regulated by the Security of Critical Infrastructure Act 2018 (The SOCI ACT). This Act requires owners and operators of critical infrastructure to report cybersecurity incidents to the Australian Cyber Security Centre. The critical infrastructure industries are particularly vulnerable to cyber attacks due to their interconnectedness and reliance on technology.

IT’S NOT ABOUT IF YOU FACE A CYBER ATTACK! IT’S ABOUT WHEN!
IA successful cyber attack on one of these industries could have a significant impact on the wider economy, disrupt essential services and cause physical damage. In 2016, a cyber attack on Ukraine’s power grid caused a widespread power outage and demonstrated the devastating consequences of cyber attacks on critical infrastructure. On May 7, 2021, Colonial Pipeline, an American oil pipeline system that originates in Houston, Texas, and carries gasoline and jet fuel mainly to the Southeastern United States, suffered a ransomware cyberattack that impacted computerized equipment managing the pipeline.
