Whistleblowers, like the ones Malcolm Turnbull defended in the Spycatcher case, or people using encryption, like, um, the Prime Minister, are some of the reasons we need to spend $230 million on new cybersecurity measures.

Yesterday, surrounded by the who's who of the IT security and finance industries, Turnbull laid out his grand plan for cybersecurity with the release of the cybersecurity strategy. The strategy was being re-written during Tony Abbott's prime ministership, and although there had been rumours that Turnbull had ordered another re-write of the document, the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet stated last year that Turnbull had not asked for "a substantial" re-write.
