Cyber security and policy

Picture of source code

The digital age revolution provides a myriad of opportunities for advancing national productivity, prosperity and innovation. Yet, as cyberspace facilitates social and economic exchange across geographical boundaries, it also poses important security and policy challenges.

The National Security College (NSC) provides cutting edge thought leadership in cyber security and strategic policy through a range of activities. Tailored cyber courses and themes feature prominently in our postgraduate degrees and professional development courses. Our research and publications in the cyber field provide forward-thinking perspectives and rigorous analysis of emerging trends, risks and opportunities for public policy and discourse.

The NSC supports a multidisciplinary approach to cyber security through research collaboration and partnerships with other ANU colleges and centres, including the College of Engineering and Computer Science. We maintain active engagement with government and industry stakeholders. Our key initiatives, including a 360° Cyber Game hosted in partnership with RAND Corporation, promote enhanced cross-sector collaboration and strategic thinking on cyber security issues.
