Leading the creation and sustainability of our cyber community
Cyber security is one of the fastest-growing sectors across the world and will be a huge source of economic growth as our reliance on digital technologies continues to accelerate.
It is projected that Australia will spend approximately $7.6 billion per year on cyber security by 2024 – a 9 per cent yearly increase from 2020 – and will drive demand for an additional 18,000 cyber security professionals over the next four years.
Hand-in-hand with this opportunity comes the critical need for robust cyber security proficiency across all sectors of the economy. Cyber criminals are becoming more sophisticated and are constantly developing new tactics to breach networks.
With the AUKUS nuclear-powered submarines set to be built in South Australia, alongside the expansion of the space industry and associated space technologies, the state will be open to increased risk of cyber-attacks.
Building South Australia’s capability and further developing a robust cyber security industry will strengthen our position as a security partner of choice, attracting investment and providing growth export opportunities.
