Cyber affairs and critical technology
Cyberspace and critical technology affect all aspects of international relations. They affect our national security, economic security, the protection and realisation of human rights and freedoms, sustainable development and international peace and stability.
For Australia, cyberspace and critical technology is a foreign policy priority. Our engagement is guided by our International Cyber and Critical Technology Engagement Strategy.
Dr Tobias Feakin is Australia’s inaugural Ambassador for Cyber Affairs and Critical Technology. He commenced as Ambassador for Cyber Affairs in January 2017, before having his mandate expanded to reflect the central role that technology issues have in geopolitics.
