NSW Cyber Security Innovation Node launched

AustCyber and the NSW Government have jointly opened a new NSW Cyber Security Innovation Node at the Joint Cyber Security Centre in Sydney.

The new Innovation Node will act as a hub for start-ups, corporations, universities, researchers and government agencies to share information and develop innovations.

It joins five other Innovation Nodes in Victoria, the ACT, Western Australia, South Australia and Tasmania that were also created in partnership with AustCyber.

The initiative forms part of the federal government’s cybersecurity strategy, which aims to help Australian business carve out a greater share of the fast-growing global cybersecurity market.

NSW Minister for Finance and Small Business Damien Tudehope said adding NSW to the Innovation Node network was an important step considering the state’s role as Australia’s leading user of cybersecurity products and services.

“A cybersecurity network without NSW would not truly be a national network,” he said.

“Together with our launch of the NSW Cyber Security Industry Development Strategy last year, the establishment of the node is a further important step taken by the NSW Government towards strengthening our cyber capabilities.”

The Sydney Joint Cyber Security Centre launched in March last year with a focus on cyber threat information sharing. The initiative is being led by CERT Australia.
