New Protections for Critical Infrastructure

New Protections for Critical Infrastructure

This week Parliament passed the Security of Critical Infrastructure Bill through both Houses to become law. This legislation is designed to protect our essential infrastructure and services from foreign interference and sabotage. As Chair of the Parliamentary Joint Committee for Intelligence and Security Committee, I’ve overseen recommendations to strengthen the Bill. 

Significantly, the government accepted a recommendation by the Committee to investigate Australia’s liquid fuel supply. This is big news for the ongoing security of our nation.
