Australian Prime Minister Sees National Cyber Threat

Prime Minister Kevin Rudd commented in Australia's National Security Statement that technological dependence and cyber threats from "hackers, ...commercial entities and foreign states" place Australia's information infrastructure at risk. Prime Minister Rudd stated:
"The irony of technology today is that, while on the one hand we are seeking to invest in sophisticated information, intelligence and military technology, on the other, we have to protect ourselves from the extreme use of basic, readily available technology and hardware by terrorist groups."
