4 April 2019 -- In an attempt to protect government IT systems against targeted attacks and enable quick responses in the event of incidents, the Australia Cyber Security Center will deliver intelligence, cyber security and offensive operations in support of the Australian Government and Australian Defense Force (ADF).
The government will invest in the creation of cyber security ‘SPRINT teams’ and a Cyber Security Response Fund, according to a joint statement from the minister of defence, Christopher Pyne and minister of defence industry, Senator Linda Reynolds.
Defence Budget papers for 2019-20 show the department will continue to support and implement whole-of-government national security reforms and launch the new Defence Industry Security Program to protect against the threat of foreign espionage and interference.
