The Australian Government’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT), through the Cyber and Critical Tech Cooperation Program (CCTCP), works with Southeast Asian and Pacific countries to improve cyber resilience within the region. The CCTCP aims to equip countries with the capacity to respond to the opportunities and challenges that cyberspace and critical technology present.
The CCTCP supports the implementation of the Australia’s International Cyber Engagement Strategy. The programmatic goal of the CCTCP is for ‘a safe, secure and prosperous Australia, Indo-Pacific and world enabled by cyberspace and critical technology. By 2024, the end-of-investment outcomes will show that selected states in ASEAN and the Pacific region increase awareness, commitment, action and international engagement to strengthen cyber resilience and build sustainable partners with Australia.
