Cyber Security - Is the Risk Increasing? What Can We Do?

You will have regularly read in the media about cyber security threats, and indeed threats that cause significant problems, as in the recent attacks which closed down the New Zealand Stock Exchange. We have also heard how Cyber security problems are becoming more and more common over time. The global disruption through COVID has changed the landscape too, with all of us spending more time online.

In this session, Paul Ash, Cyber Coordinator in the National Security Group of DPMC and the PM’s Special Representative on Cyber and Digital, shared with us his thoughts on what we as individuals can do to diminish the impact of these attacks, what our agencies are doing, and how the government and the private sector in New Zealand are managing this risk more broadly.
