Cybersecurity Strategy

Mr SOMYUREK (South Eastern Metropolitan) — I wish to raise a matter for the Minister for Technology, Mr Gordon Rich-Phillips.

The minister will be well aware that the Auditor-General today tabled the Information and Communications Technology Controls Report 2013-14, which identifies five themes regarding ICT control in the public sector. The themes are that ICT security controls need improvement, management of service organisation assurance activities requires attention, prior-period audit findings are not being addressed in a timely manner, patch management processes need improvement and ICT disaster recovery planning is weak.

The action I seek from the minister is that he release the government’s cybersecurity strategy.
