Hindustan Times (Lucknow) - - WORLD -

SYD­NEY: An Aus­tralian in­tel­li­gence agency is warn­ing that cy­ber-crim­i­nals will tar­get the up­com­ing G20 Sum­mit in Bris­bane, say­ing they could in­clude state-sanc­tioned hack­ers, trade spies or ac­tivists. As world lead­ers pre­pare to visit the Queens­land state cap­i­tal for the Novem­ber 15-16 meet­ing, the Aus­tralian Sig­nals Direc­torate has been brief­ing in­dus­try about the threat. “Tar­get­ing of events such as the G20 by state-spon­sored or other for­eign ad­ver­saries, cy­ber-crim­i­nals and is­sue-mo­ti­vated groups is a real and per­sis­tent threat,” the direc­torate said.
