The Parliament’s Intelligence and Security Committee is holding two days of public hearings on Thursday 8 and Friday 9 July, as part of its Review of the Security Legislation Amendment (Critical Infrastructure) Bill 2020 and Statutory Review of the Security of Critical Infrastructure Act 2018.

The Committee will hear from a selected range of industry, union and expert representatives that have engaged with the Committee for its review. 

Opening statements have been received from some witnesses and can be accessed as supplementary submissions.

Senator James Paterson, Chair of the Committee, said, “It is vital that we hear from the companies and industries affected by the proposed framework under the Bill, to ensure that the serious cyber security risks we face can be met effectively with the lowest possible regulatory burden and cost to consumers.”
