The disruption of our 14th Australasian Cystic Fibrosis Digital Conference in August was  the result of a coordinated criminal cyberattack. Our tech partners Padlokt - who run CFA’s dedicated ‘Consumer Connect’ platform on which the Conference was being held - have compiled a detailed report breaking down the attack and the automatic countermeasures that came into effect to prevent unauthorised access.  
Please READ HERE the Padlokt review.
