About the Australian Cyber Security Centre

The Australian Cyber Security Centre is an important Australian Government initiative to ensure that Australian networks are amongst the hardest in the world to compromise.

Partnering for a cyber secure Australia

The centre brings together existing cyber security capabilities across Defence, the Attorney-General’s Department, Australian Security Intelligence Organisation, Australian Federal Police and Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission in a single location, the Ben Chifley Building in Canberra.

Importantly, it is a hub for greater collaboration and information sharing with the private sector, state and territory governments, academia and international partners to combat the full range of cyber threats.

In July 2017 the Prime Minister released the unclassified version of the 2017 Independent Intelligence Review. The review made a number of recommendations, including new arrangements for the ACSC. While details are still being worked out, we are excited about the new opportunities.

Reports help the ACSC to develop a better understanding of the threat environment and will assist other organisations who are also at risk.

Cyber security incident reports are also used in aggregate for developing new defensive policies, procedures, techniques and training measures to help prevent future incidents.
