South Australia has released the state’s first Cyber Security Strategic plan (2018-2021).
Delivery of the Plan safeguards state infrastructure, digital assets and citizen information against the increasing incidence of cybercrime and espionage.
As our reliance on digital technology has grown, so has the need for a comprehensive approach to cyber security and resilience. In the current threat and risk environment, cyber security incidents occur every day and come from a range of sources - impacting governments, organisations and communities.
Department of the Premier and Cabinet (DPC) is the lead agency for cyber security in the South Australian Government (SAG).
The Strategy, formed with SA Government agencies and Cyber Security experts, will ensure South Australia can prevent, prepare, respond and recover from cyber threats.
There are three themes in the Strategic Plan:
• Cyber Security Influence and Leadership
• Emerging Threats & Cyber Resiliency
• Shared Responsibility.
The themes underpin a three-year program of work to transform the SA Government into a centre of excellence for cyber security and is a positive step towards enhancing cyber security resilience in South Australia.
