2023-2030 Australian Cyber Security Strategy Discussion Paper
The submission to the Department of Home Affairs in response to 2023-2030 Australian Cyber Security Strategy Discussion Paper, was prepared by the Business Law Section’s Corporations and Digital Commerce Committee of the Law Council of Australia, the Law Institute of Victoria, Queensland Law Society and Law Society of New South Wales.
The Law Council supports detailed consideration of initiatives that can drive behavioural and cultural change through the appropriate balance of regulatory intervention and industry-led best practice. Noting that many of the specific initiatives canvassed in the Discussion Paper are proposed at a high level, there will be an ongoing need to consider specific recommendations for reform through future consultation with stakeholders. The Law Council considers that this Discussion Paper should serve as a precursor to subsequent detailed consultation
The Cyber Security Strategy should play a helpful role in identifying the key principles and challenges emerging from the parallel proposals, reforms and review processes taking place in relation to privacy, data protection and cyber security regulation across the economy.
