Cyber Secure Queensland Strategic Plan


The REIQ welcomed the opportunity to provide our views on the Cyber Secure Queensland Strategic Plan (Cyber Plan) prepared by the Department of Communities, Housing and Digital Economy.

We were strongly supportive of a cyber security strategic plan being introduced in Queensland that:

  • consolidates existing State and Federal initiatives and resources;
  • incorporates and aligns with nationally accepted best practice;
  • and introduces specific objectives and targets to achieve cyber awareness and cyber resilience in Queensland across the community, business and Government.

We suggested a specific focus in the Cyber Plan on real estate dealings and transactions, given the prominence of cyberattacks targeting real estate professionals and other property stakeholders in Queensland.

Real estate businesses are a lucrative target given their involvement in facilitating high-value transactions and with the volume of personal information and data they are required to hold to properly carry out their duties. For these reasons, we believe there is a substantive opportunity to address cyber security within real estate business in Queensland by developing a robust and effective Cyber Plan.
