Australian Cyber Security Centre (ACSC)

The Australian Cyber Security Centre (ACSC) is an Australian Government initiative to bring together existing cyber security capabilities across Defence, the Attorney-General’s Department, the Australian Security Intelligence Organisation, Australian Federal Police and the Australian Crime Commission. This creates a hub for greater collaboration and information sharing regarding combating cyber threats.

The centre builds on the already strong links between government and the private sector, particularly those already established by ACSC agencies. The ACSC is considering a number of models for partnering with industry which will allow close engagement on everything from information sharing to the development of effective response strategies.
