NSW launches cyber security strategy Featured


The NSW Government has launched its first cyber security strategy with an investment of $20 million aimed at creating a “cyber safe” NSW.

The security action plan was announced on Friday by the government’s chief information security officer, Dr Maria Milosavljevic, who said, “Cyber security has emerged as one of the most-high profile, borderless and rapidly evolving risks facing governments.

"Investing in strong cyber capabilities will provide confidence to citizens and business who trust us with their data.”

Dr Milosavljevic said the action plan included a whole-of government integrated approach to managing cyber risks and “responding to cyber security threats, safeguarding our information, assets, services and citizens”.

As part of the action plan, a strengthened cyber security policy and new standardised incident reporting and incident response arrangements are being introduced to enhance government cyber security capability across all agencies.

“The suite of initiatives will ensure that the government is equipped to prevent, prepare for and respond to incidents and that each agency and all staff have a clear understanding of their role,” Dr Milosavljevic said.

“To ensure this, we have introduced whole-of-government advisories that are already improving the ability of agencies to quickly and effectively respond to emerging threats.

“We will continue to collaborate with industry leaders and research groups as well as Commonwealth and state law enforcement to ensure we maintain a collaborative approach to cyber security.”
