Alas, that great plan has died an unnatural death, not getting anywhere, and also not being mentioned by the government ever again.
[Thanks to InnovationAus for pointing this out on Tuesday].
If the ransomware plan is to make any progress, it will have to be reintroduced once the election is done. But that is unlikely.
The government is not the greatest when it comes to technology, apart from throwing money at consultants and expecting things to fix themselves.
Perhaps the IT industry was aware of this for its reaction to Andrews' grandiose pronouncement was lukewarm at best.
Maybe the ransomware gangs will take a break until the elections are over. One can only hope.
