Data Protection

The Hon. H.M. GIROLAMO (14:40): Supplementary: what additional cybersecurity services across government have been put in place, given recent events?

The Hon. K.J. MAHER (Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, Attorney-General, Minister for Industrial Relations and Public Sector) (14:40): I am happy to take that on notice as well because, of course, the breach with the Frontier systems that occurred I think about a year ago were exceptionally significant for tens of thousands of South Australians, including members of parliament and their staff who were potentially compromised. I don't have information at hand, but it is an exceptionally important question, so I am happy to take that on notice and, given events that have occurred, to bring back a reply about what actions have been taken.
