About ICPC

ICPC brings together the various Australian Government departments with a responsibility for cyber issues, along with a range of private sector partners and creative thinkers to assist Australia in creating constructive cyber policies both at home and abroad. We aim to facilitate conversations between government, private sector and academia across the Asia–Pacific region to increase constructive dialogue on cyber issues, and do our part to create a common understanding of the issues and possible solutions in cyberspace.

The centre has four key aims:

  • Lift the level of Australian and Asia–Pacific public understanding and debate on cybersecurity.
  • Provide a focus for developing innovative and high-quality public policy on cyber issues.
  • Provide a means to hold Track 1.5 and Track 2 dialogues on cyber issues in the Asia–Pacific region.
  • Link different levels of government, business and the public in a sustained dialogue on cybersecurity.

We would like to thank all of those who contribute to the ICPC with their time, intellect and passion for the subject matter. The work of the ICPC would be impossible without the financial support of our various funders, but special mention should go to the Commonwealth Bank which has been such a strong advocate and supporter of our work.
