National Cyber Security Exercise Program

We facilitate the National Cyber Security Exercise Program and the Readiness Program to validate and strengthen Australia’s nationwide cyber security arrangements.

These programs assist to broaden understanding of the roles and responsibilities of key agencies in government and across the private sector when responding to a cyber security incident.

We engage with Australian Government, state and territory governments, law enforcement, business and industry, assisting with exercises and other readiness activities. We do this by targeting strategic decision-making, technical capabilities, business, industry and international partnerships, and strategic engagement and communications. 

We recommend every organisation has an incident response plan in place and regularly reviews and tests it, to ensure an effective response and fast recovery following a cyber incident.
