Northern Territory Government to establish Cyber Security Operations Centre

The Northern Territory (NT) Government in Australia has announced an investment
of A$1.5 million over three years as part of Budget 2018 to strengthen NT
Government's cyber security capability.

The press release states that the funding is in response to
the escalating cyber threat environment and supporting the new NT Government

government's ICT network, establish a Cyber Security Operations Centre and
improve cyber security awareness across government and the community”

“With cyber-crime and attacks an ever-present threat to our
privacy, security and financial bottom-line, cyber security is now one of the
most critical strategic issues for organisations globally. While digital
connectivity is vital for government's business, the escalating threat of cyber
intrusion, with the potential to compromise or steal information or disrupt
services, presents a significant and increasing business risk,” Ms Manison
