Support cyber security research & innovation

Innovation, including commercialisation and improved uptake of digital technologies, processes and systems, is critical to the growth of the cyber security sector in NSW. The speed of adoption translates into revenue which propels the speed of innovation and new product development. The development of emerging technology not only improves productivity and competitiveness but also generates and retains talent. These factors together create an ideal environment for attracting R&D investment.
