This Action Plan complements the Strategy by outlining the actions the Government will take to achieve Australia’s cyber security goals by 2020:

  • Governments, business and the research community together advance Australia’s cyber security through a national cyber partnership.
  • Australia’s networks and systems are hard to compromise and resilient to cyber attacks.
  • Australia promotes an open, free and secure cyberspace by taking global responsibility and exercising international influence.
  • Australian businesses grow and prosper through cyber security innovation.
  • Australians have the cyber security skills and knowledge to thrive in the digital age.

Recognising that cyberspace constantly changes, the Government will evaluate its progress and update this Action Plan annually.
