The Australian Cyber Security Centre
The Australian Cyber Security Centre (ACSC) is the Australian Government’s lead on national cyber security. It brings together cyber security capabilities from across the Australian Government to improve the cyber resilience of the Australian community and support the economic and social prosperity of Australia in the digital age.
In July 2018 the ACSC became part of the Australian Signals Directorate (ASD), which became a statutory agency. Australian Government cyber security expertise from CERT Australia and the Digital Transformation Agency moved into the ACSC.
These changes are part of the government's national security reform package to enhance the cyber security support and services the government provides to industry, government and the community.
Former ASD and CERT services are now delivered by the ACSC, and we are working on consolidating our online services and advice into one website, cyber.gov.au. This work continues in 2019. Advice on this site remains current.
