The $70.3 million Cyber Security Skills Partnership Innovation Fund forms part of Australia’s Cyber Security Strategy 2020, Cyber Security National Workforce Growth Program, and was developed in recognition that skilled cyber professionals are essential for keeping Australians secure online, and to underpin government and industry capability and capacity.

The objectives of the Cyber Security Skills Partnership Innovation Fund are to:

  • the creation of new and innovative ways to improve the quality and quantity of cyber security professionals in Australia
  • improve collaboration between industry and the education sector to build the quality and availability of cyber security professionals in Australia support industry and academia to attract, train and place cyber security talents into their businesses

The intended outcomes of the Cyber Security Skills Partnership Innovation Fund are:

  • increased diversity of the cyber security workforce including lifting the participation of women, Indigenous Australians, regional and remote based workers, and neuro diverse individuals  
  • delivering a pipeline of highly skilled cyber security professionals to meet with the current and future need of Australia’s digital economy
  • enhanced Australia sovereign cyber security capability to underpin our growing digital economy and the safety of all Australians

We expect that the types of projects that will be competitive for this funding will include collaborations between organisations such as industry associations and other bodies, higher education and vocational education providers, secondary schools, local and state governments, and businesses.
