Australian government wants power to run cyber-response for businesses under attack

Twanky

'when an attack is detected “ …. Government be able to provide reasonable, proportionate and time-sensitive directions to entities to ensure action is taken to minimise its impact.”'

Government

Reasonable

Proportionate

Time-sensitive
