Ambassador for Cyber Affairs

International relations

Dr Tobias Feakin has been announced as Australia's inaugural Ambassador for Cyber Affairs.

The Government's decision to establish the position of Ambassador for Cyber Affairs was one of the principal initiatives of the $230 million Cyber Security Strategy, which encourages collaboration between Australian Government, business, academia and communities to improve cyber security.

Cyber threats are not bound by national borders so it is important we work with other countries to strengthen the global response to cybercrime. The Ambassador for Cyber Affairs will lead Australia's international cyber effort, working closely with the Special Adviser to the Prime Minister on Cyber Security.
