Home Affairs Department secretary Mike Pezzullo says he is deeply concerned about the threat that cyber attacks pose to Australia’s critical infrastructure. His comments to Senate estimates were made as the federal government is planning new legislation aimed at better protecting the nation’s critical infrastructure, while Prime Minister Scott Morrison has recently urged Australian organisations to protect themselves against cyber attacks. Pezzullo used his appearance before Senate estimates to defend a speech in which he warned the "drums of war" were beating.
