The Joint Cyber Security centre opened in Brisbane just before the weekend.  CERT, the Computer Emergency Response Team that has expanded its activities to include all forms of cybersecurity, is charged with protecting Australia’s interests against cyber warfare.

They will do this by being part of the government security shield network, and also liaising with corporates who have strategic importance to Australia’s defence, communications and economy.  This is part of the Governments strategy to deal with institutionalised hackers and cybercrime.
