Problems Identified:

We have examined the overall problem of data security which is a growing concern globally. We have applied our focus for the GovHack event toward the Government Health sector which can be a vulnerable area of concern. Our findings lead us to the particular issue of "ransomeware" that highlights this problem to be a growing concern whereby 4000 attacks occur daily across the world in the health sector alone of which Australia would be included.

The Working Solution:

Agricultura

Totally Original

Our application is an investigation into statistics relating to the Australian agricultural industry. Using extensive datasets acquired from the Australian Bureau of Statistics, we have created an online app that allows users to explore data trends relating to annual agricultural turnouts. The statistics we explored were specifically, industry turnovers, industry value and employment numbers in Australian regions heavily dependent on agriculture. Our application allows for users to explore these agricultural trends down to an SA2 level, that is, a regional level.
