The Australian Government’s 2023–2030 Cyber Security Strategy heralds a significant step forward in securing our nation’s digital landscape. At Evolution Systems, we are excited about the synergy between this strategy and our SIMPLEX 6 framework, especially in empowering Australian SMEs with customised cyber resilience. This blog explores how SIMPLEX 6 complements and actively contributes to Australia’s ambitious cyber future.
Aligning with the National Strategy, Australia’s new cyber security strategy is structured around three key horizons and six foundational shields. Here’s how SIMPLEX 6 aligns with each aspect:
- Strong Businesses and Citizens (Shield 1): Our personalised approach in SIMPLEX 6 is in perfect harmony with the government’s emphasis on bolstering the cyber capabilities of businesses and individuals. We focus on bespoke strategies and cyber health checks, which are crucial in the strategy’s initial phase.
- Safe Technology (Shield 2): The adaptive nature of SIMPLEX 6 resonates with the strategy’s commitment to safe technology usage and compliance with international security standards. We give priority to integrating safe AI use and promoting cyber-secure product development.
- World-Class Threat Sharing (Shield 3): SIMPLEX 6’s forward-thinking strategy supports the government’s goal of establishing a comprehensive threat intelligence network. This enhances collaboration and threat-blocking capabilities across industries.
- Protected Critical Infrastructure (Shield 4): Our comprehensive approach underpins the protection of critical infrastructure, a key focus of the government’s plan, ensuring resilience against potential large-scale cyber threats.
- Sovereign Capabilities (Shield 5): By enhancing the cyber knowledge and skills of Australian SMEs, SIMPLEX 6 contributes to bridging the cyber skills gap, echoing the government’s initiative to bolster the workforce and support cyber startups.
- Resilient Region and Global Leadership (Shield 6): Our commitment to an adaptive and evolving cyber strategy mirrors the government’s aim for enhanced international collaboration and setting global cybersecurity standards.
