Our Vision and Mission

Strengthening Regional Cyber Resilience

Based in Melbourne, Australia the Oceania Cyber Security Centre (OCSC) is a not-for-profit cybersecurity assessment, evaluation and research organisation that conducts evidence-based cybersecurity capacity building in the Indo-Pacific. Jointly owned by eight Victorian Universities, the OCSC is focused on building regional capabilities through a mix of national cybersecurity capacity assessments, independent evaluations, localised research, and educational programs.

At the invitation of governments, we conduct multi-stakeholder national cybersecurity capacity assessments using the University of Oxford’s Cybersecurity Capacity Maturity Model for Nations (CMM). These assessments help partner nations understand where they stand now on the cybersecurity maturity journey and identify their own priorities for next steps, while providing specific recommendations for national policies, strategies, and activities to strengthen capacity and resilience.

The OCSC continues to work with partner nations and the international cyber security capacity building community on research and capacity building projects that meet the identified needs and requests of partner nations, toward a safer and more secure digital environment for all.
