With the increasing prevalence of malicious cyberattacks, new regulations have been introduced to ensure that the government has knowledge of cyber incidences affecting specific entities in the following industries:
- data storage or processing
- financial services
- healthcare and medical
- higher education and research
- food and grocery comment transport
- space technology
By implementing a mandatory reporting regime, the government seeks to strengthen the security and resilience of critical infrastructure, by empowering the relevant authorities to more immediately address critical cyber incidents - and to develop responses and protections to minimise the risk of future incidents occurring.
