Swoose produces white paper on cybercrime in Australia

Milton Baar, Director Technology Innovation, has written a white paper that will be published in a research document for the Council for Asian Terrorism Research (CATR).

The Council for Asian Terrorism Research (CATR) was founded in 2005 to provide specialised research that draws from the diverse expertise and perspectives of resident experts across the South and South-east Asian regions. Through regular communication and collaboration, CATR members have developed new approaches, enhanced existing capabilities and built integrated and cooperative efforts to counter terrorist, insurgent, and other violent transnational threats in the Asia-Pacific region. CATR represents a commitment by its member institutions to engage in an ongoing program to develop a deeper understanding of the causes that give rise to terrorism and politically motivated violence, to forge more effective national and regional responses to share best practices in counter-terrorism / counter-radicalisation.

The white paper discusses aspects of cybercrime within Australia and evaluates the current state of identification and mitigation.
