Cyber centre launched to combat cyber crime
The Joint Cyber Security Centre (JCSC) in Brisbane’s CBD is now open—allowing law-enforcement agencies, government and industry to collaborate and share information to counter cyber attacks.
Other centres are planned for Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth following a successful evaluation period in the Brisbane facility.
This is the first stage of the Federal Government’s $47 million cyber security plan.
Queensland Government Chief Information Security Officer Bob Gurnett said Queensland Government has worked with CERT Australia and other government and private sector organisations to identify the initiatives of greatest value to JCSC participants.
“The JCSC complements the Queensland Government’s existing cyber security improvement program which commenced in early 2016.
‘It is important that we all work together to strengthen the level of protection and response to cyber crime and major security incidents,’ Mr Gurnett said.
