Australia is a developed and mature society and is highly dependent on key critical systems at both the national and state level. These systems have become more dominant as the Information Age has developed. We can group these together and describe them as critical infrastructures; infrastructures so vital that if it is incapacitated or destroyed it would have a debilitating impact on our defence/national security as well as our daily lives.<br><br>It is hard for us in Australia to imagine the consequence of a cyber-attack: <ul><li>an extended loss of power or the failure of related systems such as ATMs, the internet and medical equipment;</li><li>the failure of public transportation systems;</li><li>water treatment plants being non-functional;</li><li>or a lack of food at the supermarkets due to the malfunction of food distribution systems, but this could be consequence of an attack on our critical infrastructure.</li></ul> <p>The COVID-19 situation has brought new security risks to Australia including potential cyber incidents relating to health, supply chains and individuals.<br><br><img alt="User-added image" src="https://id.acs.org.au/servlet/servlet.ImageServer?id=0150o00000HuFyD&amp;oid=00D90000000o5NE&amp;lastMod=1650506310000"></img><br><br><strong>IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR ATTENDEES</strong><br><em>We take the health of our members, staff and the community seriously.
