Coordinate disruption activity
Coordinate disruption activities across multiple programs or entities to strengthen processes and identify serious and organised criminals targeting multiple programs.
Why this countermeasure matters
Serious and organised criminals are using advanced and complex methods to target government programs. Poor or no coordinated disruption activities can lead to criminals:
- continuing to exploit programs
- shifting focus and exploiting new programs
- exploiting multiple programs
- easily moving into and exploiting other programs.
How to put this countermeasure in place
Some ways to implement this countermeasure include coordinating disruption activities like:
- revoking funding approvals
- de-registering businesses and individuals
- issuing Commonwealth debt notices
- conducting taxation assessments
- sharing information with other entities to support due diligence processes
- referring service providers to state and territory regulators or to law enforcement entities for those groups that reach the threshold for complex criminal investigations.
