On 6 August 2020, the Australian Government released Australia’s Cyber Security Strategy 2020 (3MB PDF).
The Australian Cyber Security Strategy 2020 will invest $1.67 billion over 10 years to achieve our vision of creating a more secure online world for Australians, their businesses and the essential services upon which we all depend. It will be delivered through:
- Action by governments to strengthen the protection of Australians, businesses and critical infrastructure from the most sophisticated threats.
- Action by businesses to secure their products and services and protect their customers from known cyber vulnerabilities.
- Action by the community to practice secure online behaviours and make informed purchasing decisions.
While this Strategy is an Australian Government initiative, we recognise the essential role of state, territory, local governments, businesses, academia, international partners and the broader community in strengthening Australia’s cyber security. Every part of government, business and the community has a role to play in implementing the Cyber Security Strategy 2020.
The Australian Cyber Security Strategy 2020 replaces Australia’s 2016 Cyber Security Strategy (2MB PDF).
