Cyber security refers to measures relating to the confidentiality, availability and integrity of information and data that is processed, stored and communicated by electronic or similar means, protecting it and associated systems from external or internal threat.
To develop and implement cyber security capabilities, we must preserve and improve the:
› protection of sensitive citizen and other data against loss, malicious alteration, and unauthorised use
› resilience of government services, systems and infrastructure to cyber threats
› continuity of government during and following serious cyber incidents
› protection and security of new digital services for citizens
› coordination of our response to threats against infrastructure, and
› security and viability of Victorian Government core infrastructure.
