The South Australian Government and the state’s space and defence leaders are set to meet the heads of the South Korean and Japan space agencies following the federal government’s announcement it will establish a national space agency.

The government is leading a mission to South Korea and Japan to discuss to discuss business opportunities which might arise with South Australia’s own decision to set up the SA Space Industry Centre (SASIC) and will meet the heads of space organisations, Korea Aerospace Research Institute (KARI) and Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA).

Led by Investment and Trade and Defence and Space Industries Minister Martin HamiltonSmith, this week’s South Australian mission will focus on the areas of agribusiness, education, health industries, aged care and advanced manufacturing sectors.

HamiltonSmith says that creating new partnerships with key Japanese and South Korean space players will be high on the agenda.

The mission will also include a tour of the National Space Organisation and its cyber centre, in Taiwan, aimed at further developing collaboration opportunities in space and cyber.

Ransomware is a type of malware that blocks access to your files and systems until you pay a ransom.

The first example of ransomware happened on September 5, 2013, when Cryptolocker was unleashed.

It quickly affected many systems with hackers requiring users to pay money for the decryption keys.
