Green light for cyber CRC to tackle hackers

Online Security Technology background

Australia will set up a $140 million cybersecurity research centre to ramp up protection for digital services and develop early detection systems to block hackers and other cyberthreats.

The Cyber Security Cooperative Research Centre will be led by defence technology industries and will involve more than 25 research partners from IT companies, universities and government agencies.

Funding for the CRC was announced in Canberra on 22 September by federal cybersecurity minister Dan Tehan and assistant science minister Craig Laundy. They gave no details about where the CRC was likely to be based, but it appears that Perth and Canberra will play prominent roles.
