​​​​​​​​2023-2030 Australian Cyber Security Strategy

On 8 December 2022, the Minister for Cyber Security, the Hon. Clare O’Neil MP, announced the development of the ​2023-2030 Australian Cyber Security Strategy (the Strategy)​.

Read more about the Strategy in the Minister’s media release.

The Strategy will help us achieve the Australian Government’s vision of making Australia the most cyber secure nation in the world by 2030. The Australian Government will lead a nationally coordinated approach to build Australia’s cyber security and resilience.

The Government is developing cyber security policy and initiatives under four key areas: 

  • A secure economy and thriving cyber ecosystem.
  • A secure and resilient critical infrastructure and government sector.
  • A sovereign and assured capability to counter cyber threats.
  • Australia as a trusted and influential global cyber leader, working in partnership with our neighbours to lift cyber security and build a cyber resilient region.​
