Assistant Minister for Home Affairs Senator the Hon. Linda Reynolds and Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk today announced the activation of Category C recovery grants for primary producers left devastated by widespread flooding in North Queensland.
The Insurance Council of Australia (ICA) has issued advice on what to do after a flood:
The floods in January and February 2019 in Townsville have provided some much needed relief for growers and farmers in the area, in addition to filling the Ross River Dam and lifting the stress of the dry.
All of us at NQIB would like to thank you for your support over the past twelve months and look forward to continuing our association in the new year. We extend our best wishes to you and your family for the festive season and wish you a safe and prosperous new year.

Cybercrime is not just a big company issue. According to Australian Federal Police statistics, 71% of cyber attacks occur in businesses with fewer than 100 employees. A wide range of entities are at risk and the statistics are horrifying. For example:
From 22 February 2018, the Notifiable Data Breaches (NDB) Scheme has been added to the Privacy Act 1998. This makes it compulsory for certain organisations to report data breaches to both the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner (OAIC) and the people affected.
The scheme requires notification of unauthorised access to, disclosure of, or loss of information likely to result in serious harm. Failure to act and report a breach could see fines and penalties of up to $360,000 for individuals and $1,800,000 for organisations.
A Cyber Insurance Policy can’t stop a cyber attack. It is designed to protect a business by providing financial support and incident response expertise to help recover from adverse events, including ransomware attacks, point-of-sale intrusions, denial-of-service attacks and cyber espionage.
