Royal United Services Institute of Victoria Lunchtime Address – Senator James Paterson

April 27, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Senator James Paterson is a Liberal Senator for Victoria. First elected in March 2016 at age 28, Senator Paterson is the youngest Liberal ever elected to the Senate.
Senator Paterson was appointed the Shadow Minister for Cyber Security and the Shadow Minister for Countering Foreign Interference by Opposition Leader Peter Dutton. Cyber attacks and foreign interference are two of the most serious contemporary threats to Australia’s national security.

He was the Chair of the Parliamentary Joint Committee on Intelligence and Security from February 2021 until May 2022. During this time, Senator Paterson oversaw a record high workload in response to Australia’s changing security environment, handing down 23 reports relating to Australia’s national security in just 12months.

He currently chairs the Senate Select Committee on Foreign Interference Through Social Media and is the past chair of the Joint Committee on Corporations and Financial Services, and the Senate Finance and Public Administration Committee.

Senator Paterson is also the Australian co-chair of the Inter-Parliamentary Alliance on China; co-patron of Liberal Friends of Israel; and co-chair of the Parliamentary Friends of the Baltics.
