Our Research

The CSCRC provides frank and fearless research and in-depth analysis of cyber security systems, the cyber ecosystem and cyber threats.

Our researchers strive to produce evidence-based solutions to critical cyber security problems, with real-world applications to help governments, businesses and individuals.

This is underpinned by collaboration – the centre does not operate in a silo. Rather, we work with industry partners and universities to produce research with academic rigour and tangible results.

This is achieved by engaging in relevant projects aimed at enhancing Australia’s sovereign capabilities, building our nation’s cyber capacity and helping to ensure policy and law keep pace with technology.
