The Australian Department of Defence officially opened a new Joint Cyber Security Centre in Adelaide, South Australia, on 23 November.

The centre is a part of Australia’s lead cyber security agency, the Australian Signals Directorate, and its Australian Cyber Security Centre. The centre will support bilateral partnerships with state and territory governments through an Australian Cyber Security Growth Network (AustCyber) Cyber Security Innovation Node located on the premises.

Karen Andrews, Minister for Industry, Science and Technology, said: ‘AustCyber’s partnership with the Marshall government will help improve cyber defences, develop skills, grow jobs and increase Australia's export opportunities in the booming global cyber security market.

‘The coalition government is determined to realise the industry growth opportunity of the rapidly growing global cyber security market, expected to be worth $250 billion by 2026.’
