ICT Security underpins everything we do. We focus a large amount of our energy on managing the ICT security assurance regime and developing strategies to keep Government information safe. While governments all over the world face increasing levels of threats in ICT, we counteract this with robust ICT security policies, durable systems, employee enabled resistance and effective risk awareness programs.
Our responsibilities also cover:
The Director of Security and Risk Assurance is the principal advisor to the Executive Director, ICT and Digital Government on ICT security.
The Department of the Premier and Cabinet is designated as the Control Agency for ICT Failure under South Australia’s emergency management arrangements. ICT and Digital Government manages these responsibilities on behalf of DPC and forms an integral part of the arrangements. When an ICT failure occurs that requires a coordinated government response, the Control Agency is responsible for the response to the incident and the subsequent recovery effort. Resources from agencies and suppliers are coordinated to minimise disturbance and risk.
