Bitcoin supports Big Umbrella

Bitcoin supports Big Umbrella Image

As part of his visit to Bitcoin’s Blockchain Centre in Southbank last month, the Prime Minister’s special adviser on cyber security Alistair MacGibbon took part in local charity The Big Umbrella’s ReaL MeaL program.

After visiting the centre on March 24, Mr MacGibbon joined Blockchain community members to take part in the charity’s regular meal program on Flinders St, which supports Melbourne’s homeless community.

Joined by his assistant secretary Sandra Rugg, Mr MacGibbon toured the Blockchain Centre.

Mr MacGibbon told Southbank Local News that the visit was part of an effort to gain a greater understanding of start-ups and smart technologies around the country to create a robust national cyber security strategy.  

“If we as a government are going to help influence the ecosystem that people operate in our cyber strategy, I think the bit that will make this strategy unique and most effective is the whole concept of growing cyber industries,” he said.
