Australian Government launches an Online Reporting Portal for Cybercrime
The Australian Government has launched the Australian Cybercrime Online Reporting Network (“ACORN”), which is a secure reporting and referral service for cybercrime and online incidents that may be in breach of Australian law.
Certain reports will be directed to Australian law enforcement and government agencies for further investigation.
The Federal Government should be congratulated for this important initiative which will hopefully gather better statistics on this form of crime and also start tracking down some of the perpetrators. I am sure this type of crime is costing Australian business and the economy a lot more than people realise. I am staggered just how many SME’s think it will not happen to them.
