A major technology development in Australia’s CO2 reduction strategy is the Government’s new security alert technology that could reduce carbon emission by up to 40 per cent in the next 20 years.
Key points:The security alert software is designed to detect breaches in Australia security and public order systems.
The system, which will be rolled out over a period of time, uses a combination of technology and user training to identify people who could be at riskThe system has been developed by the National Cyber Security Centre and will be launched this monthIt is designed specifically to detect and prevent threats to public order and securityThe security alerts are being rolled out to the public over a 10-year period to improve public safety, protect the environment and increase security for Australian businesses and citizens.
“The system is designed for the purposes of public order protection, public order enforcement and public safety,” National Cybersecurity Centre CEO Stephen Kiley said.
“It is also designed to assist the security of Australian business networks and services, with a particular focus on security of private industry networks and facilities.”
The system will be developed and rolled out by the Centre’s Advanced Systems and Cyber Security Research Unit, which also developed Australia’s own secure communications network.
The centre will also work with other relevant stakeholders to develop a security assessment framework to inform the development of the system.
The Australian Government said the system would help it to reduce its carbon emissions by 40 percent by 2030.
The project, called the Secure Communities Security Alert System, will provide a framework for developing a public-private partnership to provide public order security, public security and security enhancement services to secure Australian homes.
The new security software will be deployed by the Federal Government in 2018.
It will be used in conjunction with other existing and future security systems.
“Security alerts will help us to prevent serious and persistent threats to the security and safety of our citizens and businesses, and help us keep Australia safe,” Minister for Security, Integrity and Citizenship Stephen Conroy said.
The Government’s announcement comes as the Turnbull Government is considering a range of security and privacy measures, including tougher rules on the use of encrypted smartphones and more aggressive policing.
The Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet has also unveiled a range in the wake of the tragic shootings at a Sydney café.
Key findings:The Government has set out plans to strengthen its own security measures, and said the introduction of the new security alerts could help it reduce carbon pollution.
In a statement the Department of Home Affairs said the Government was committed to ensuring all Australians had access to a safe and secure home.
“As part of our commitment to a more secure and secure nation, we will continue to make our home security system as secure as possible and work closely with the Australian Cyber Security Group to ensure the best possible security measures are in place to help protect our homes,” the statement said.
It added that the new system would be “based on an assessment of the current state of the nation’s security and to the best of our knowledge, we have been able to identify some very significant threats to our national security and wellbeing”.
The Government said it was working closely with other security and intelligence agencies to secure Australia’s public and private sectors.
“We are investing more than $50 million into our national cyber security network, which is the foundation of the Government and Government-wide security and defence,” Minister Conroy added.
The Federal Government’s security update is due to be rolled-out to all home-owners in the year 2020.
