Description:

Under the 2020 Cyber Security Strategy, the Cyber Security National Workforce Growth Program recognises skilled cyber professionals are essential for keeping Australians secure online, and to underpin government and industry capability and capacity. The Cyber Security Skills Partnership Innovation Fund is part of this program.

The objectives of the Cyber Security Skills Partnership Innovation Fund are to:

  • improve the quality or quantity of cyber security professionals in Australia, including increasing the participation of women in cyber security
  • improve collaboration between industry and the education sector to build the quality and availability of cyber security professionals in Australia
  • support industry and academia to build Australia’s future pipeline of skilled cyber security professionals.

The intended outcomes of the Cyber Security Skills Partnership Innovation Fund are:

  • increased availability of cyber security professionals in Australia
  • increased quality of cyber security professionals in Australia
  • increased participation of women in cyber security professions
  • innovative or new ways to improve cyber security skills
  • stronger partnerships between industry and education providers to enhance cyber security related skills.

We expect that the types of projects that will be competitive for funding will include collaborations between organisations such as industry associations and other bodies, higher education and vocational education providers, secondary schools, local and state governments, and businesses.
