AustCyber provides a national layer of coordination on cyber security innovation. We are able to multiply and connect people and organisations across Australia, keeping a strategic view across local ecosystems in States and Territories.
The National Network of AustCyber Nodes
The Nodes support AustCyber’s goal by giving state and territory governments the remit and tools they need to collaborate and innovate in their own jurisdictions, working within AustCyber’s framework for national alignment. Each Node commits to the national priorities, as defined by AustCyber’s business strategy and Australia’s Cyber Security Sector Competitiveness Plan. The Nodes are co-funded with AustCyber by a state or territory and principally focused on local capability development and challenges.

Supporting government implementation
AustCyber advocates for the role of policy in Australia’s cyber security ecosystem and influences policy and regulatory development at all levels of government in Australia. We have formed partnerships with relevant industry associations across the economy to cross promote industry interests and to support industry to have a voice in government policy development and implementation.
We also support industry-relevant initiatives under the Government's International Cyber Engagement Strategy and support Government and Industry Cyber Security Dialogues.
Women are underrepresented in the cyber security industry. AustCyber works with the Australian Government’s Women in Cyber program and the Australian Women in Security Network to support initiatives that bring more women into cyber security, including events like the 2018 Go Girl, Go for IT event.
