As Australia looks back on 2023, a key standout is the growth of cybercrime and the subsequent financial and emotional impact on Australian citizens. Australia started 2023 in the wake of the Optus data breach and the Medibank hacking, and the attacks continued with the year recording more security breaches than ever before.

Australia’s critical infrastructure has been under attack in unprecedented numbers, with the Australian Signals Directorate, in its annual cyber threat report, revealing that in the last financial year, the agency responded to 143 incidents at critical infrastructure entities such as ports; this figure up from 95 incidents in the previous year.

The Israel Trade Commission in Australia, with the Israel Export Institute, will hold an event in Sydney on Friday, April 12 for the top five Israeli cybersecurity firms to meet with Australian professionals from government, industry and academia on a day that will include two panels and B2B meetings.

The companies are:
