In October 2017 DFAT released Australia’s inaugural International Cyber Engagement Strategy (ICES) to guide international engagement across the full range of Australia’s interests in cyber affairs.
Recognising the dynamic of Australia’s digital interests, DFAT will update the ICES in 2020, and broaden the scope to include critical technology, reflecting the increasing interdependencies and linkages between our cyber and technology policy interests.
DFAT invites industry, NGOs, civil society, academia and interested individuals in Australia and overseas, to provide input into the CCTIES through a public call for submissions.
Public submissions will form part of a broader program of consultation DFAT will undertake as part of the development of the CCTIES. This will include consultation across the Australian Government; closed consultations with experts and key stakeholders; and the establishment of an Expert Advisory Panel.
The deadline for public submissions is Tuesday 16 June, 11:59pm AEST to CyberAffairs@dfat.gov.au.
More info about submissions is here.
