GUEST OPINION by Geoff Schomburgk, Vice President for Asia Pacific and Japan at YubicoOn social media, in business and in the media, we’re increasingly hearing how companies should be protecting themselves against cyberattacks. Whilst we’re all at risk of having our credentials stolen, there are certain groups of individuals that need protecting more than others. Overseas, these include numerous organisations and individuals that are defending the freedom of the press, human rights and election security throughout many vulnerable regions where cyberattacks pose an enormous risk.

It is critical that security solutions are freely available and exist to help protect Australian electoral staff and political parties from such attacks.
