The Department is responsible for central coordination, and strategy and policy leadership in relation to:
- cyber and critical infrastructure resilience and security
- border security and management
- the protection of our sovereignty
- citizenship and social cohesion.
We implement a strategically coordinated approach to the cyber security and resilience of all Australians. We enable rapid responses to threats of foreign interference. Additionally, we contribute to Australia’s prosperity and unity through the management and delivery of the migration, humanitarian and refugee programs. We also promote social cohesion through multicultural programs, settlement services and by managing and conferring citizenship.
