The South Australian Cyber Security Strategic Plan 2018-2021 seeks to safeguard state infrastructure, digital assets and citizen information against the increasing incidence of cybercrime and espionage. This will help deliver more responsible data sharing for social change, better protect the safety and prosperity of South Australians, and enhance the government’s digital engagement with the business community.

The plan sets out the next three year's program of work to transform the South Australian Government into a centre of excellence for cyber security.  The comprehensive strategy comprises three strategic themes:

  1. Influence leadership
    Strengthen the role of government in providing sound governance and clear accountabilities for a whole of government approach to cyber security.
  2. Build resilience
    Strengthen the approach to the prevention of, detection of, response to and recovery from cyber security threats and incidents.
  3. Shared responsibility
    Cultivate a collaborative approach that brings together all levels of government with academia and the private sector to cyber security.

Consisting of 11 core objectives and 39 activities, it will deliver more responsible data sharing for social change, better protect the safety and prosperity of South Australians, and enhance the government’s digital engagement with the business community.
