Podcast special: Why aviation needs to heed PM’s warning of Russian cyber attacks

written by Robyn Tongol | March 9, 2022

In this bonus episode of the Australian Aviation Podcast, hosts Phil Tarrant and Major General (Ret’d) Marcus Thompson discuss the importance of Australian businesses, including the aviation sector, to prepare for possible cyber threats.

The pair begin by discussing MAJGEN (Ret’d) Thompson’s recent opinion piece in The Australian Financial Review, which dives into Russia’s history of cyber and information warfare, and the threat of Russian cyber attacks being weaponised in reprisal against Australia for supporting Ukraine during the recent conflict.

Both hosts continue by discussing the impact of cyber warfare on Australian businesses, and how many malicious actors work in concert with state-sponsored groups to exploit the cyber domain.

The pair wraps up the podcast by analysing how cyber remains an integral part in both hybrid and greyzone warfare, and that foreign actors will continue to use cyber as an essential attack vector in future conflicts.
