"Connecting with confidence: optimising Australia's digital future"

18 October 2011

This paper seeks to start discussion how government, industry and the 
community can work together to address the challenges and risks arising 
from greater digital engagement.

The result of this conversation will be the release of Australia’s first 
Cyber White Paper in the first half of 2012.

This discussion paper seeks your views on a wide range of issues, 
including how we can together minimise cyber risks so we can maximise 
social and economic opportunities in the digital economy. 

We greatly value your views on how we can get the right balance between 
Australia’s social, economic and security needs. The discussion paper is 
not designed for a technical audience. However, a glossary of terms has 
been provided at the back of the document to assist readers unfamiliar 
with terms or concepts.

The Cyber White Paper website:  http://www.cyberwhitepaper.dpmc.gov.au 
will enable electronic lodgement of submissions relating to questions in 
the discussion paper.

Written submissions can be forwarded electronically to 
cyberwhitepaper at pmc.gov.au or via mail to the Department of the Prime 
Minister and Cabinet, One National Circuit, Barton, 2600, ACT.

The White Paper team will accept written submissions from 14 September to 
14 November, after which formal submissions will close. 

The final White Paper will be released in the first half of 2012.
