Early warning, prevention and incident response are key for the ACSC"s expert workforce, underpinned by strong collaboration with partners across Government, business and the community.
"Working together to safeguard critical systems, helping to find and fix vulnerabilities, and, ultimately, striving to change behaviour as we grow cyber resilience across the economy is essential," said Alastair MacGibbon, Head of the ACSC.
"We"re increasingly engaging with industry, with small to medium enterprises, with state and territory and local governments, and with the not-for-profit and non-government sector to marshal all of our resources to create a better cyber security environment for all Australians," he said.
The ACSC, part of the Australian Signals Directorate (ASD), brings together a range of capabilities from across government at its purpose-built Canberra hub, including an engagement zone where people can share knowledge and skills in a trusted environment. This is supported by nodes across the country, including Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, Sydney and Adelaide.
"From the lounge room to the boardroom, the ACSC is now implementing the ASD"s new remit that will see it work with people and organisations in the public and private sectors," said Mr MacGibbon.
