The Security Legislation Amendment (Critical Infrastructure Bill) 2020 is currently working its way through parliament and has the potential to dramatically change the scope of the security expectations for a wide range of organisations.

The goal of the amendments, according to the Government’s explanatory document, is to protect “the essential services all Australians rely on by uplifting the security and resilience of our critical infrastructure.”

These threats, the document states, range from “natural hazards (including weather events) to human induced threats (including interference, cyber attacks, espionage, chemical or oil spills, and trusted insiders).”
