Cyber security is important for Australia's national security, innovation, and prosperity.
A resilient national cyber ecosystem is fundamental to all of our futures. We need to work together as a nation to secure our networks and systems. We must also support our technology industry to thrive and capitalise on the growing global need for cyber security.
Australia's approach to cyber security recognises that everyone has a role to play when it comes to securing our digital future – from all levels of government, businesses, and everyday Australians.
The Department of Home Affairs' role is to support the Minister’s development of cyber security policy for the Australian Government, including the implementation of 2023-2030 Australian Cyber Security Strategy. We work on cyber security threats and opportunities in Australia and overseas, including the security of critical and emerging technology.
