The CSIRO’s annual report shows that it undertook an internal review of its IT security following a data breach that was first disclosed in late 2013. In November of that year, the Australian Federal Police began an investigation into the unnamed Chinese scientist who was at the centre of the suspected breach, after he failed to turn up for work and subsequently returned to China. CSIRO has since invested millions of dollars on upgrading its cyber security and information systems.
