Ensuring all Australians can benefit from the digital economy is one of the key objectives of the inaugural International Cyber Engagement Strategy. Outlining Australia’s cyber affairs agenda for the next three years, the Strategy recognises the central role of working together with the private sector and puts forward a plan of action to ensure Australia reaps the full benefits of the digital age.

A key deliverable of the Government's Cyber Security Strategy, it sets an ambitious agenda across the full spectrum of cyber affairs:

  • capturing the economic opportunities promised by digital trade
  • protecting Australia from the threat of cybercriminals and
  • preserving stability in cyberspace.

The International Cyber Engagement Strategy also sets out Australia’s position on how international laws should be applied to cyberspace, our commitment to transparency and an approach to responsible online behaviour.

The International Cyber Engagement Strategy was officially launched by the Australian Minister for Foreign Affairs, the Hon Julie Bishop MP, and will be managed by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
