Report an incident

Report to us

We encourage major businesses to report cyber security incidents to us.

This allows us to form a more accurate view of cyber security threats and make sure that businesses receive the right help and advice.

All information provided to us is held in the strictest confidence.

We work in the Australian Cyber Security Centre, sharing information with other key cyber security agencies and our international counterparts. This means we are very well connected and informed, which is a great asset in helping businesses protect themselves from cyber attacks.

We are also a strong point of referral, which can lead to some very positive outcomes in terms of resolution.
