Victoria's Cyber Strategy - Mission Delivery Plan (2022-23)

Victoria’s Cyber Strategy was established to create a cyber safe Victoria. It guides our work to build improved cyber security resilience for government, industry and the community.

Priority Initiatives

This Mission Delivery Plan details the initiatives we will pursue over the next two-years to improve government cyber resilience and build cyber safe communities and a vibrant cyber economy for Victoria.

We will achieve this by:

Reducing the risk of adverse cyber security events on government systems and services

  • Establishing a Whole of Victorian Government Cyber Operating Model to improve cyber risk management across the Victorian Public Service (VPS).
  • Building a VPS Cyber Hubs Model to improve cyber governance, technology, resource management and interoperability across the VPS, supported by a central Victorian Government Cyber Defence Centre.
  • Making cyber security more accessible by reducing the time and complexity to procure cyber goods and services, supporting the scale and re-use of common cyber capabilities.
  • Improving the adoption of baseline cyber controls and cyber skills across the VPS, improving public sector cyber defences.
  • Providing effective incident coordination and operations support to the VPS, while helping departments and agencies improve their incident management capability.

Boosting cyber security skills, talent and career pathways

  • Building a pipeline of cyber talent for industry and the VPS, including targeted skills initiatives, talent attraction and inclusive opportunities for women, young people and mid-career Victorians
  • Strengthening cyber career pathways in partnership with industry and education providers including raising awareness of cyber careers, skillsets and professional qualifications.

Supporting the continued growth of Victoria’s cyber industry

  • Accelerate the growth of Victoria’s cyber industry by strengthening Victoria’s reputation as the cyber capital of Australia, and growing the state’s cyber industry with procurement, export and investment opportunities.
  • Partner with industry to develop and deploy cyber solutions which support businesses, communities and government including through local procurement, hackathons and cyber labs and targeted collaboration with industry.

Building improved cyber security resilience for the community and across industries

  • Establishing a clear, trusted voice to advise the community on cyber risk and prevention strategies, in consultation with the Australian Cyber Security Centre and Victoria’s cyber industry.
  • Supporting Victoria Police to develop enhanced cybercrime capability, improving the ability of police to identify, detect, investigate, disrupt and deter cybercrime in Victoria.
  • Enhancing Victoria’s preparedness for cyber security emergencies and other state-significant cyber events, to reduce the potential for adverse community impacts and consequences.
