Cyber security is as intrinsically linked to innovation as it is to national security. It is the bedrock of innovation, growth and prosperity. Today and into the future, it is a national opportunity that governments, the private sector and the community are all invested in and can all derive benefit from.
Australia needs to get cyber security right. We need to work as a nation to secure our networks and systems. Not only to protect our information, but to provide the environment for Australian innovation to flourish; to enable our technology industry to thrive; and to capitalise on the growing global need for better cyber security solutions, equipment and skilled individuals.
