Robots (especially those that are not equipped with advanced artificial intelligence) are typically incapable of doing this, as they're often programmed to perform simple tasks.

CyberCX eyes Australian government with Foresight acquisition


The Australian cyber megamix CyberCX has made yet another acquisition, this time scooping up Foresight with an eye on its government portfolio. CyberCX, the group of security companies headed by two of Australia's most experienced technology and cyber veterans, said specialist cybersecurity consultancy Foresight would strengthen its Canberra footprint and cement its capability and credentials as "Australia's leading cybersecurity organisation".

Founded over a decade ago, Foresight is an independent cybersecurity consultancy focused on technical security compliance and assurance activities for enterprise and government. CyberCX said Foresight has deep expertise providing security solutions to leading Australian and global organisations, working with Australian government agencies in assessing large and highly complex systems. The consultancy also has a particularly strong cloud security practice and works with cloud service providers, government agencies, and large enterprises.
