Global - Services - Smartcards - Fraud and Security

Synopsis

Archived report. This report was archived in 2005 and has not been updated. Computer fraud is a major impediment to the expansion of e-commerce. Not only does it represent a financial loss to the victims, but it acts as a deterrent to people using on-line commerce. Fraud can take many forms, from simply using a stolen card, copying cards while out of sight of its owner, or ‘skimming’ information from cards as they are inserted into ATMs. This report describes the various forms of fraud, and systems being introduced to combat it.

"As you know, I have resigned from the Labor Ministry and have decided not to re-contest the seat of Charlton at the next election – both for personal reasons.

Before leaving Parliament, I particularly wish to record my thanks to you for your generous and constructive participation in the deliberations that generated significant economic policy reforms for the Australian community. Continuous economic transformation is a key challenge that faces all Governments.

The development of sound public policy should always be contestable. Ultimately, good and equitable outcomes are not concessions to any particular interest group, but the careful balancing of interests to create the greatest possible benefit for the nation. You have contributed to that, and I sincerely thank you for it."

Greg Combet, Former Minister for Climate Change, Industry and Innovation
