Australian Government consults on critical infrastructure protection
- Published: Tuesday, 21 February 2017 09:11
The Australian Government has published a discussion paper, entitled ‘Strengthening the National Security of Australia's Critical Infrastructure’. Comments on the document are requested by 21st March 2017.
The paper explores how Australia’s new Critical Infrastructure Centre can best work with state and territory governments, as well as with industry and investors to develop additional measures to tackle complex and evolving risks and engage more closely with critical infrastructure owners, operators and regulators.
The Critical Infrastructure Centre will develop national security risk assessments and advice, coordinated across government, to better support decision-making on investment transactions. It will also provide greater certainty and clarity to investors and industry on the types of assets that will attract national security scrutiny.
Submissions in response to the discussion paper can be emailed to email@example.com or posted to:
