Feakin to represent Australian cyber interests globally

By

Dr. Tobias Feakin has been appointed Australia’s first ambassador for Cyber Affairs.

The role is part of the Government’s $230 million Cyber Security Strategy and will identify opportunities for practical international cooperation and ensure Australia has a coordinated, consistent and influential voice on international cyber issues.

He has been a member of the Independent Panel of Experts that supported the Australian Cyber Security Review to produce Australia’s Cyber Security Strategy. He has been the Director of National Security Programs at the Australian Strategic Policy Institute since 2012 and established the Institute’s International Cyber Policy Centre.

Dr. Feakin Ph.D. has had many research and advisory positions, including the Royal United Services Institute for Defence and Security Studies, the Oxford University Global Cyber Security Capacity Centre, the Global Commission on Internet Governance, and the Global Commission on the Stability of Cyberspace.

Minister for Foreign Affairs Julie Bishop said, “Cyber threats are not bound by national borders. The role is a new frontier that affects our economic and security interests. The Ambassador will support cyber capacity building in our region, advocate against state censorship of the Internet and promote Australia’s view that opportunities provided by the Internet should be available to all people.”
