Cyberspace has become all pervasive. Every facet of a modern life has elements of cyberspace embedded in it. Therefore securing the cyberspace has become a necessity, which can no more be wished away. This space collate the news and views affecting the security of our cyberspace.
New digital technologies like cloud computing and smart phones offer further opportunities to enhance people's lives through digital technologies. However, challenges such as cyber security and safety, privacy, or jurisdictional issues could prevent our societies from tapping the digital revolution's true potential. In order to bring together U.S. and Australian public and private sector experts to discuss how best to address these issues, and compare domestic experiences and perspectives, the United States and Australia, together with the private sector, are to hold a dialogue on “Cloud Computing,” featuring former U.S. Chief Information Officer Vivek Kundra, in Canberra in February 2012. The dialogue will address how to eliminate obstacles to trans-border flows of data or information, while maintaining data security and privacy as well as law enforcement and national security. The two governments will explore the possibility of future dialogues on other digital topics of mutual concern.
