Cyber security is important for Australia's national security, innovation, and prosperity. We need to keep our information safe, working as a nation to secure our networks and systems. We also support our technology industry to thrive and capitalise on the growing global need for cyber security experts, equipment and solutions.
The Department of Home Affairs leads the development of cyber security policy for the Australian Government, including the implementation of the Government's Cyber Security Strategy and Action Plan, and the Cyber Resilience Taskforce. We work on cyber security threats and opportunities in Australia and overseas.
Our partners include government, the private sector, academic institutions and community organisations.
