The main purpose of hackers is administrators' accounts

According to a new report by the Australian government's general auditor, federal government departments and organizations have to do extra moves to protect information from hackers.

The auditor general in his report notes that 70 was obtained from the audit. Of these, 56% concerned management of information technology controls, especially of privileged users. These are users who can make significant changes to IT systems while having the ability to bypass security settings and access information that is not available to all users. These findings increase the risk of unauthorized changes to systems and data.

That's it Cybersecurity, has recently become a subject, with reports of hackers who have been able to access the Australian National University database, and last February they have violated Parliament's network. Investigations conducted by Australian agencies seemed to investigate whether China, among other state actors, was behind the attempt.
