Australia’s digital infrastructure is becoming a target for cybercriminals and their allies, with new technology and new forms of attack becoming increasingly common.
The threat is especially pronounced for digital infrastructure that includes the internet of things (IoT), the devices and services that allow us to connect to our phones, computers, TVs and other devices.
IoTs, which are the same technologies used by companies such as Amazon and Airbnb to connect devices to the internet, are becoming increasingly popular among criminals because they allow them to quickly identify devices and other equipment, steal them, or even to remotely disable them.
But they’re also becoming increasingly difficult for governments to combat because many IoT devices and their associated data is encrypted.
The use of encryption has been a growing concern for governments and regulators alike.
They worry that this could be used to compromise or disrupt digital infrastructure and undermine cybersecurity.
While governments around the world have adopted strong encryption standards, it’s not always easy for them to enforce them.
The use of strong encryption has increased, but it has not always been the case.
This article examines the encryption standards that have been adopted around the globe for IoT devices, as well as the challenges they face when enforced.
In addition to IoT security, governments also have to contend with the increasingly sophisticated ways in which the internet works, particularly with regards to its ability to relay and exchange data.
These challenges are also a concern for the use of digital infrastructure.
These are the topics covered in this article:The digital infrastructure of AustraliaAs part of our Digital Infrastructure in the 21st Century report, we looked at the digital infrastructure in Australia and how it compares to the rest of the world.
The digital economyAustralia’s digital economy is one of the fastest growing in the world, with GDP growing by 2.9% in the year to March 2019, up from 2.6% in 2016.
In 2017, Australia ranked third in the G20 on the world’s largest online retail marketplace, Amazon.com.au.
In the same period, Australia was fourth in the World Trade Organisation’s digital trade statistics, behind the United States and the European Union.
The online retail industry has grown by 12% in real terms since 2013, to a value of $17.7 billion.
It’s a remarkable figure considering Australia’s population is only 2.5% of the total world’s.
The UK has a population of 13% and India is 9.8%.
It’s worth remembering that Australia’s online retail business is growing by more than twice as fast as the Australian economy.
In 2020, Australia recorded its fastest annual growth rate in the global online retail sector.
The report notes that digital technology is a critical part of Australia’s economic growth, with the number of digital transactions per head of population increasing from 0.8 in 2015 to 1.2 in 2020.
It also notes that this growth is being driven by more people working in digital commerce.
In 2016, the Australian Bureau of Statistics recorded the highest number of Australian employees working in a digital business, with 1.5 million people in the industry.
More:The Australian Bureau and its research partners also identified Australia as the fifth most competitive place in the international rankings for digital commerce, behind Singapore, France, and the United Kingdom.
This is in part because of the country’s strong financial sector, which is the main driver of digital commerce in Australia.
The key findingsThe digital industry is the third largest in Australia, after telecommunications and finance.
It has grown over the past 15 years to a total value of nearly $22 trillion.
This growth has been driven by an ageing population, a growing number of Australians working in the digital economy and the digital technologies they use.
In addition, the number and value of digital payments has also grown significantly.
The Australian economy grew by more at 3.6%, and the proportion of the Australian workforce working in finance and technology has also increased over the last 15 years.
This has led to the growth of digital services such as the internet.
As the digital industry continues to grow, so has the number, size and complexity of digital businesses.
This is especially true in the retail and telecommunications sectors, which account for more than half of all Australian digital businesses in 2020, and account for almost 20% of all digital businesses globally.
Australia’s economy grew faster in the last year than any other economy in the OECD, including Australia, France and the US.
Australia is also ahead of most of its competitors in the EU, China, Japan, and South Korea.
Australia is home to more than 40% of global digital commerce and about half of its digital transactions.
The internet is one key part of the digital transformation in AustraliaThe Australian Government is investing $400 million over five years to upgrade the infrastructure that enables the digital revolution.
The upgrade will be implemented over the next five years, with some of the upgrades already underway.
The upgrades include a new centralised information system for Australia’s information technology, a new cloud computing platform and a new
