Become an ACSC partner


The ACSC partnership program is open to wide range of industry, the research community, as well as to state, territory and Australian Government.

We engage with partners across the whole of the Australian economy to increase their cyber resilience and to share situational awareness. Organisations who become ACSC partners can access timely alerts and advisories, rapidly share insights, and increasingly work together to solve common challenges.

What ACSC partnerships provide

Threat intelligence

We constantly monitor for cyber security threats from a range of local and global sources, including through government and business computer emergency response teams (CERTs) around the world.

As a partner, you will automatically receive threat intelligence, consisting of context-rich, actionable and timely information in a variety of formats, including advisories and automated indicator sharing.

This intelligence:

  • gives you simplified, fast and secure exchange of cyber threat information so you can prioritise and implement countermeasures in the face of a threat
  • improves the quality, scope and consistency of your threat information
  • enables more effective, real-time decision making
  • frees your response and operations personnel to focus on activities that cannot be automated.

Access to the JCSC network

As an ACSC partner, you can make use of the Joint Cyber Security Centre program, and access centres across Australia.

How to become an ACSC partner

The ACSC partnership is available to:

  • businesses that:
    • are a registered business with an Australian Business Number (ABN)
    • maintain IT security personnel in Australia and are able to act on operational cyber security or operational technology information 
  • government agencies (state, territory and federal) with a defined role, or key interest in, Australia's cyber security arrangements
  • security vendors and consulting firms that sell cyber security products or services, and are willing to contribute their cyber security capabilities to the JCSC program on a not-for-profit basis
  • academic, research and not-for-profit institutions.

To join as a partner, you must sign a Deed of Confidentiality, which sets out the protocols for sharing and protecting information within the centres. Email to become an ACSC partner.
