NSW Cyber Security Strategy 2021

The NSW Government has updated its Cyber Security Strategy. The 2021 NSW Cyber Security Strategy will replace the 2018 NSW Cyber Security Industry Development Strategy and the 2018 NSW Government Cyber Security Strategy, combining both into one overarching cyber security strategy.


The NSW Cyber Security 2021 is a comprehensive, sector-wide strategy that will ensure a whole-of-government approach to continue the provision of secure, trusted and resilient services to the citizens of NSW and to nurture economic growth within the State’s cyber security industry.


This Strategy is complementary to the Federal Government’s ’Australia’s Cyber Security Strategy 2020’ and has been developed with inputs from extensive consultation with industry, businesses, academia and governments.

The NSW Cyber Security Strategy 2021 focuses on four key commitments:

  1. Increase the NSW Government’s cyber resiliency
  2. Help NSW cyber security businesses grow
  3. Enhance cyber security skills and workforce
  4. Support cyber security research & innovation
