Building a Resilient Cyber Security Eco-System
All societies are struggling to create language and terminology that describes and explains how the Internet works and how it relates to the human experiences and daily lives of ordinary people. Three concepts or ideas, in particular, have gained currency that are unhelpful and, indeed, misleading, and need to be called out as such – the digital economy, the hacker, and limits to the utility of analogies.
This whitepaper discusses the role Australia might play to strengthen the cyber resilience of regional nations to their benefit and to Australia’s as well. It seeks to articulate, in plain English, concepts that many have struggled to explain when it comes to policy and legislative challenges that the internet, and cyberspace more generally presents to our national and global society.
