Wednesday, May 15th, 2019
The Australian Government established the Critical Infrastructure Centre (the Centre) in January 2017, to safeguard Australia’s critical infrastructure. The Centre brings together expertise and capability from across the Australian Government to manage the increasingly complex national security risks of sabotage, espionage and coercion. Through the Security of Critical Infrastructure Act 2018 and the Telecommunications and Other Legislation Amendment Act 2017, the Australian Government is supporting industry to identify and mitigate national security risks posed to Australia’s critical infrastructure.
This session will discuss the Security of Critical Infrastructure Act 2018, its application and the Centre’s functions.
