A new cyber security innovation node backed by the NSW State Government and the Federal Government has been launched in New South Wales.

The NSW Cyber Security Innovation Node joins five other state and territory nodes created in partnership with AustCyber, the Australian Cyber Security Growth Network.

Federal Minister for Industry, Science and Technology Karen Andrews said on Wednesday that the new node was another important step in developing an industry that would boost Australia’s economy and create jobs.

“This new node in Sydney, backed by AustCyber and the NSW Government, will bring together startups, corporations, universities, researchers and government agencies to share expertise and create new ideas,” she said.

“The Morrison Government is determined to reap the rewards of the rapidly growing global cyber security market which is expected to be worth US$250 billion by 2026.

“We want to generate more investment and more jobs for Australians.”

NSW Minister for Finance and Small Business Damien Tudehope said NSW was Australia’s “leading user of cyber security products and services and home to the nation’s largest fintech industry”.

“A cyber security network without NSW would not truly be a national network.

“Together with our launch of the NSW Cyber Security Industry Development Strategy last year, the establishment of the node is a further important step taken by the NSW Government towards strengthening our cyber capabilities,” Tudehope said.

The NSW Cyber Security Innovation Node will be co-located with, and complement, the Joint Cyber Security Centre in Sydney, which has a focus on threat information sharing.

It joins a network of nodes backed by AustCyber and state/territory governments already established in Victoria, the ACT, Western Australia, South Australia and Tasmania.

The Federal Government has said that growing the cyber security sector is part of the its broader plan to grow the economy and create 1.25 million new jobs over the next five years.
