Mapping Cyber and Cyber Relevant Law in Australia
The Australian Cyber Law Map aims to create an online map of Australian laws that affect cyber security and cyber resilience. There is complexity in that and in future phases the team could be well positioned to identify fundamental gaps in our regulatory and compliance frameworks.Contributions to the Map are made by invited academics and experts working in the field of cyber law and cyber security.https://austlii.community/foswiki/CyberLaw/WebHomeImage by Edward Lich from Pixabay

Novel use of AI for data breach detection
With so many data breaches being reported daily, organisations are struggling to keep on top of the threat actors, techniques and attacks.Aussie innovators PenTen and Worldstack have collaborated to develop HoneyTrace, a platform using AI to generate unique and realistic 'fake' tokens (like documents, credit card numbers) to lure attackers and allow cyber defenders to be quickly notified of the suspicious presence of any watermark tokens.https://www.honeytrace.io/

DARPA Selects Researchers to Accelerate Use of Fully Homomorphic Encryption
Protecting and preserving personally identifiable information (PII), intellectual property, intelligence insights, and other forms of sensitive information has never been more criticalFully Homomorphic Encryption (FHE) is an approach to data security that delivers mathematical proof of encryption by using cryptographic means, providing a new level of certainty around how data is stored and manipulated.DARPA continues to lead R&D investment with the latest project seeing collaboration between Intel, Galois and two others part of the project team.https://www.darpa.mil/news-events/2021-03-08image credit: Pete Linforth from Pixabay

Research Fraud amplified by AI?
Typically research papers are peer reviewed before publication (particularly in top journals). While research fraud is not new, the co-director of a prestigious artificial intelligence lab in Cambridge, Massachusetts USA found his name on papers he didn't co-author. What if Algorithims (AI) could scan existing research papers and generate new content? Would you be able to distinguish? Would authors be aware?https://www.wired.com/story/ai-research-paper-real-coauthor-notimage credit: Image by Anja from Pixabay

new Micro VC led by Gen-Y
Very cool idea. AfterWork Ventures, a “micro” venture capital fund - led by younger generation - could this new VC support under-represented entrepreneurs? Is this the makings of a fierce community? Since 2017, Afterwork has made thirty investments across two portfolios including into a fintech start-up (Wagetap) that lets employees access part of their pay before payday and a healthy pet food delivery company called Lyka. Their proof of concept fund had $1 million under management from around fifteen different investors. Nice to see diversity in the VC industry! https://www.afterwork.vc/ Image by Tumisu from Pixabay

Privacy-preserving exchange?
Manta Network recently closed a USD$1.1M funding round to create a fully private decentralized exchange. At the moment, some would consider the blockchain too transparent for a number of finance transactions enabling someone to see the transaction and commit it with a higher fee before you do. Perhaps privacy is important on the blockchain after all?Manta wants to create an automated market maker exchange on Polkadot that would feature fully private swaps, and obfuscate wallet addresses (among other attributes). Could a privacy-preserving decentralized finance stack be a reality sooner than we think?https://cointelegraph.com/news/manta-aims-to-bring-a-private-decentralized-exchange-to-polkadot-with-1-1m-raiseImage by V
