Govt funding starts flowing to agencies in real-time – Strategy – Software- Tempemail – Blog – 10 minute

Federal government agencies can now access urgent funding during business hours or on the weekend through the New Payments Platform (NPP), ending a decades-old reliance on manual cash management processes.
After a two-year project to bring real-time settlement to the government, the Department of Finance commenced using the NPP – which has been available to financial institutions since 2018 – in March.
The department has been working to modernise cash management processes by linking up the to the platform since receiving funding in the 2018 budget to drive productivity improvement across the public service.
Using the NPP allows Finance – as financial manager of the Commonwealth’s cash management system – to better manage the billions of dollars of public funds that flow in and out of government each year.
It does this through the government’s central budget management system (CBMS) – the platform used by Finance and other agencies to put together the Commonwealth budget and track spending against throughout the year.
Until March this year, federal funding – more than $500 billion in and $500 billion out each year – was moved manually, which involved agencies having multiple dealings with Finance and the Reserve Bank of Australia. 
But this caused problems for the government when trying to move money over a weekend, during a shutdown period or even during a national emergency, Finance’s then governance and APS transformation deputy secretary Stein Helgeby told senate estimates in May 2018.
In a statement on Friday, NPP Australia said the implementation of ‘Project NeRF’ had allowed Finance to start using the NPP, in partnership with the RBA and other authorised deposit-taking institutions. 
It said access to the platform would allow agencies, including those responsible for delivering policies and programs as part of the government’s pandemic response like Services Australia, to better respond to emergencies.
Services Australia has also been leveraging the NPP to deliver emergency welfare and disaster payments to Australians in recent years, including during the Townsville floods in 2019 and catastrophic Black Summer bushfires over December and January.
The RBA’s banking department deputy head Stepanie Connors the availability of the NPP meant an end to constraints in legacy payment infrastructure that stopped government agencies from accessing funds in real-time.
“If a government agency required funding in order to make payments, they would need to request a drawdown of funds by 2pm on the business day before payments were due to ensure the money was in their bank account at 9am on the payment date,” she said.
She said that, whereas urgent funding requests had previously only been available once per day through the RBA’s real-time gross settlement system (RTGS), agencies could now access funding on-demand.
“Now funding can be approved and paid immediately on any day of the week, which means government agencies can better respond to emergencies, such as the need to pay for medical supplies,” she said.
The RBA is also using its new 24/7 core banking system, which is used to process payments for government clients like Services Australia, and a API gateway solution to integrate with government back office systems.
“These capabilities, together with the development of the NPP, means we are able to fully integrate with government back office systems to enable initiation of real-time payments,” Connors said.
“We involved our government customers early in the NPP journey to ensure they were thinking about how the government could leverage the many benefits NPP offers.
“This enabled them to include NPP payments as part of their systems development roadmaps.”

Govt mulls stricter cyber security accountability for agencies – Strategy – Security- Tempemail – Blog – 10 minute

The Attorney-General’s Department has flagged that stricter cyber security accountability mechanisms could be on the way for federal government agencies following a string of worrying cyber resilience audits.
But the government remains tight-lipped on whether cyber security controls would be enforced, like it is reportedly considering for the private sector as part of the country’s next cyber security strategy.
This is despite years of subpar compliance with the Australian Signals Directorate’s mandatory Top Four cyber mitigation strategies across government, as repeatedly revealed by the Australian Tempemail Audit Office.
The Top Four form part of the government’s protective security policy (PSPF) framework, which requires that agencies self-assess against 16 core requirements each year using a to ‘maturity model’ and report the results to the AGD.
The maturity model was introduced in October 2018 following a review that found the former ‘compliance model’ contributed to a ’tick-the-box’ compliance culture.
But early results from that reporting indicates that compliance remains relatively unchanged, with 73 percent of agencies reporting either ‘ad hoc’ (13 percent) or ‘developing’ (60 percent) levels of maturity in 2018-19 protective security policy framework (PSPF) reporting.
Speaking at a parliamentary inquiry into cyber resilience on Thursday, AGD’s integrity and international group deputy secretary Sarah Chidgey on Thursday said the department was now looking at further improving the framework to drive compliance.
“We have already flagged as part of the government’s security committee … that we want to work on arrangements that would add to that self-assessment moderation option to check agencies’ rating and support them as part of that assessment process,” she said.
“So that is something we have in our work program at the moment. We’re conscious that we’ve just had the first year of maturity reporting, and are now looking at how we can improve that building on the results we got from this year.”
When asked by Liberal MP and committee chair Lucy Wicks whether these discussions had considered benchmarking agencies against other similar agencies to compare cyber resilience, Chidgey said “yes”.
“I think that is what we’re looking at, particularly in that adding to the framework we’ve got more of an external moderation or benchmarking process,” she said.
“What we’ve got with the maturity model already improves our comparative ability to a degree across agencies, but we are considering how we further enhance that by also an external mechanism.
“Whether we do it by agencies cross-assessing each other or central arrangements for going in and assessing or moderating agencies’ assessment results is something we’re working through and have some initial conversations with colleagues, for example, in New Zealand.”
The comments come as the government talks up introducing tighter regulation of cyber security protections for the private sector, particularly banks, healthcare, utilities and other critical infrastructure.
The minimum cyber security standards for businesses, which could be set “industry-by-industry”, would likely be introduced later this year as part of the government’s cyber security strategy. 
But Labor MP and deputy committee chair Julian Hill said that introducing enforceable standards in the private sector when the government was struggling to enforce its own cyber security standards under the PSPF, could be seen as hypocritical.
“So we’ve got this situation in the Commonwealth where there’s no regulator or enforcement for Commonwealth entities’ compliance with the government’s standards,” he said.
“And yet the government is out there floating there about to put some teeth into regulating the private sector. Why the distinction?”
In response, Department of Home Affairs’s cyber, digital and technology policy first assistant secretary Hamish Hansford said “there are a range of different regulatory options” that the government was considering as part of the upcoming cyber security strategy.
“In the context of regulation, obviously a matter for the government is to look at how, if and when or why they would regulate, and the extent to which government would be included in any regulatory reform or any holistic response to cyber security,” he said.
Hansford also said that the government, as part of the cyber security strategy, was looking at the “biggest question” of “how do you defend at scale”.
“How do you prevent cyber security attacks at scale across the Commonwealth, across all of our entities, what does that look like, and how do you look at aggregation more generally, and how do you look at the holistic network of government operations,” he said.
“And that’s really a key issue from a macro cyber security policy that the department is looking at really closely with the Digital Transformation Agency.
“And as I’ve indicated previously, the government will have something to say about government cyber security in this regard in the coming months.”
Questions also remain over the level of accountability that agencies have to Parliament, given that attempts by Labor to solicit answers around Top Four and Essential Eight compliance last year were met with the same blanket response. 
In these responses, the agencies – or most probably the ASD and Home Affairs – said publicly reporting individual agency compliance with the Essential Eight “may provide a heat map for vulnerabilities “ that could “increase an agency’s risk of cyber incidents ”.
As Shadow Assistant Minister for Cyber Security Tim Watts noted, not reporting these details in a public forum, or ASD’s anonymised cyber security posture report to parliament, the government had opted for “security in obscurity”.

NSW govt seeks input on next cyber security strategy – Strategy – Security- Tempemail – Blog – 10 minute

The NSW government is seeking views from industry to help shape the state’s next cyber security strategy ahead of its launch later this year.
Customer Service Minister Victor Dominello on Tuesday called for input from industry partners and cyber security experts as development of the 2020 NSW Cyber Security Strategy ramps up.
The strategy will replace NSW’s 2018 cyber security strategy, which was the first to be released by the government and introduced a holistic approach to incident prevention and response.
It will also replace the separate, industry-focused cyber security strategy released by the government in November 2018 to support the growth of the state’s cyber security industry.
Dominello said involving industry experts and businesses in the new stategy’s development process was important to encourage the state’s vibrant cyber security industry.
He said the “comprehensive, sector-wide” strategy would ensure the government “continues to provide secure, trusted and resilient services in an ever-changing and developing environment”.
“The new strategy will be delivered through an integrated approach to prevent and respond to cyber security threats and safeguard our information, assets, services, businesses and citizens,” he said.
The strategy is also central to the state’s COVID-19 recovery, with $240 million allocated to cyber security over the next three years as part of a $1.6 billion investment in digital.
“The 2020 NSW Cyber Security Strategy will address the cyber workforce and skills gaps that are vital in attracting business investment and creating innovation jobs,” Dominello said.  
“It will support innovation and growth of the NSW cyber industry and cement NSW as the leading state for cyber security in the Asia-Pacific region.
“Cyber security will be a vital part of the technology community at Tech Central which will be a home for tech giants, new and innovative start-ups and leading talent all in one place.” 
Industry partners and cyber security experts can send their submission to the 2020 Cyber Security Strategy by emailing [email protected].

Govt reveals $1.35bn investment in cybersecurity over next decade – Security- Tempemail – Blog – 10 minute

The government has unveiled a $1.35 billion investment to beef up Australia’s cybersecurity capabilities over the next decade, a third of which will go into a new team of 500 specialists.
The investment is being called the “largest ever … in cybersecurity” in the country, and will be known as the CESAR package.
CESAR stands for cyber enhanced situational awareness and response.
“My government’s record investment in our nation’s cybersecurity will help ensure we have the tools and capabilities we need to fight back and keep Australians safe,” Prime Minister Scott Morrison said in a statement.
The CESAR package confirms what has been rumoured to have been in the works for the past fortnight after Morrison fronted a surprise Friday morning press conference with news of sustained but unspecified foreign actors targeting critical Australian interests.
Of the $1.35 billion, $470 million – about one-third – will be put into assembling a team of over 500 new security specialists that will sit within the Australian Signals Directorate.
Some of the new cash injection will also go towards building Australia’s offensive capabilities, an expansion that was first flagged by the ASD in early April.
This is said to include the ability for government officials and industry to recognise and block attack traffic from even entering the country.
The government said it would put “over $31 million” into enhancing the ASD’s ability “to disrupt cybercrime offshore, taking the fight to foreign criminals that seek to target Australians, and providing assistance to federal, state and territory law enforcement agencies.”
A new cyber threat-sharing platform will be built for $35 million, “enabling industry and government to share intelligence about malicious cyber activity, and block emerging threats in near real-time.”
Additionally, $12 million will go “towards new strategic mitigations and active disruption options, enabling ASD and Australia’s major telecommunications providers to prevent malicious cyber activity from ever reaching millions of Australians across the country by blocking known malicious websites and viruses at speed.”
Other investments detailed this morning include at least:

$118 million to expand ASD’s data science and intelligence capabilities on emerging threats
$62 million to deliver a national situational awareness capability “to better enable ASD to understand and respond to cyber threats on a national scale”. 
$20 million to establish “cutting-edge research laboratories to better understand threats to emerging technology, ensuring that ASD continues to provide timely and authoritative advice”.

Not all of CESAR was announced today: some parts will be held back and “ detailed in our 2020 cyber security strategy”, the government said.
The timing of that strategy’s release was not updated, though it was recently listed as “the coming months”.
Of the $1.35 billion, $748 million was announced today, leaving some $602 million still to be allocated.
The full investment would also mean relying on successive governments to carry through with the original plan. 
In its entirety, the CESAR package “will put our nation on the front foot in combating cyber threats and our investment in a cyber security workforce will help ensure we have the people we need to meet future cyber challenges,” Defence Minister Senator Reynolds said.
“For example, this package will enable ASD and Australia’s major telecommunications providers to prevent malicious cyber activity from reaching millions of Australians by blocking known malicious websites and computer viruses at speed,”
“This package is one part of our $15 billion investment in cyber and information warfare capabilities that will form part of Defence’s 2020 Force Structure Plan to address the rapidly evolving cyber threat landscape.”

NSW govt sets up vulnerability tracking centre in Bathurst – Security- Tempemail – Blog – 10 minute

The NSW government has set up a cyber security vulnerability management centre in Bathurst, which will start operating next month.
The centre will be operated by Cyber Security NSW, the new name given to what was formerly the Office of the Government Chief Information Security Office.
It will provide the NSW government with an increased awareness of vulnerabilities in internet-facing services and assets,” Customer Service Minister Victor Dominello said in a statement.
“It will deliver a vital, sector-wide risk management capability and is critical to ensuring enhanced monitoring of at-risk government systems, as well as early identification and remediation of known vulnerabilities.
“Early detection of vulnerabilities and the ability to report them to the relevant agencies and departments is essential to improving our cyber security.”  
The government added that the centre “will provide ongoing and automated vulnerability scanning across departments and agencies, and as capability develops, other services will be introduced.”
The centre is the first of its kind in NSW and will employ eight Bathurst-based cyber security staff.
It will also see Cyber Security NSW work in partnership with UpGuard “to provide the NSW Government with greater capabilities to detect and manage internet-facing vulnerabilities and data breaches.”
The centre’s establishment comes as the NSW government prepares to invest $240 million into cyber security over the next three years.
It also comes as news reports emerge of the state government being a major target of a potentially state-based attack.

NSW govt data centre goes down after power outage – Strategy – Storage – Networking- Tempemail – Blog – 10 minute

A number of NSW Health and Service NSW systems are offline after the state government’s Silverwater data centre suffered a power failure overnight.
Reports of issues with NSW Health systems, including the state’s electronic medical record and other corporate applications, emerged this morning.
The health.nsw.gov.au website has also been down all morning. It currently returns the message “cannot connect to the configuration database”.
After enquiries to NSW Health’s digital arm, eHealth NSW, a spokesperson for the Department of Customer Service told iTnews the outage had been caused by a power issue.
“The NSW Government data centre at Silverwater experienced a power issue at 4am this morning,” the spokesperson said.
“This has impacted a number of government systems across the State this morning, in particular NSW Health and Service NSW.”
While technical staff are still investigating the cause of the outage, the spokesperson appeared to rule out a cyber attack.
“Technical staff have been working to urgently bring systems back on line and are investigating the cause,” the spokesperson said.
“It is not believed to be a cyber security incident.”
The spokesperson said while NSW Health had executed business continuity processes, “no patient data is affected by the outage and patient safety is unaffected while systems are rebooted”.
“Service NSW customers should expect some delays to a number of services,” the spokesperson said.
The outage comes days after a system outage at Transport for NSW that was reportedly due to a “malicious hack”.
Separately, The Sydney Morning Herald also reported that a series of cyber attacks against the NSW government and critical infrastructure providers prompted Prime Minister Scott Morrision’s cyber attack warning last week.
More to come.

Govt to set infosec standards industry-by-industry: report – Security- Tempemail – Blog – 10 minute

The government is reportedly crafting minimum cybersecurity standards for industries that manage critical infrastructure following a highly-publicised attack warning late last week.
Citing “industry sources”, The Australian Financial Review said standards could be set “industry-by-industry”, with banks, healthcare and utilities high on the list.
The prospect of tighter regulation of cybersecurity protections and practices for critical infrastructure was also raised to iTnews by several industry sources.
Any new regulations are expected to be laid out in the government’s forthcoming cyber security strategy, due to be released “in the coming months”.
The mechanics of how such regulations would work, and how enforceable the standards might be, were unclear at the time of writing. 
A Home Affairs spokesperson was contacted by iTnews for comment, but did not address specific questions.
“The government is continuing to develop the 2020 cyber security strategy and will consider advice from the industry advisory panel prior to finalisation,” the spokesperson said.
“The 2020 cyber security strategy will build on the strong foundations established by its predecessor and will take into account the rapidly evolving cyber security landscape, including the impact of COVID-19.”
The advisory panel’s make-up is heavily weighted towards telecommunications, leading to some concerns about how representative it is of broader business interests.
Technical details examined
Debate over the purpose of Prime Minister Scott Morrison’s cyber security warning last Friday continued into this week, as did analysis of the indicators of compromise (IOCs) released by the Australian Cyber Security Centre (ACSC) in support of the government warning.
Though much talk has centred on attribution, Mercury Information Security Services cast doubt that a Chinese APT [advanced persistent threat] – “at the very least one from within the government” – was behind the campaign described by the ACSC.
“Whilst the ACSC report and artefacts suggest operational sophistication, the lack of technical sophistication and operational security indicate that this may have been more of a ‘hit and run’ style event that is more consistent with criminal elements,” Mercury ISS said.
“Having stated this, the absence of disruptive or destructive activities may suggest the usual criminal action of ransoming networks was not the intent, and this could be an information grab over an extended period of time, albeit from a low tier government, or a third party in support of a government.”
Security vendor Mimecast also said separately that its threat intelligence team “conducted a grid signal and trend analysis that did not reveal any of the email-related IOCs published by the ACSC.” 
“Our assessment … is that there wasn’t a specific attack campaign – but rather that the frequency of broad attacks from a particular state-based actor has increased,” it said in a statement.
“This is an acknowledgement of what we have been raising awareness about for some time.”
Long-running infrastructure focus
The government, together with the ACSC, has been warning about the threat to critical infrastructure for some time.
Last month, the ACSC issued advice to critical infrastructure providers following a jump in cyber activity that had hit corporates and government entities alike.
It urged the operators of Australia’s mission-critical electricity, water and telco infrastructure to double check security controls for staff accessing control systems remotely during COVID-19.
Last year, the government ran a cybersecurity exercise with the electricity sector aimed at strengthening end-to-end security protections in the sector.
Operators of Australia’s electricity, water, gas and port infrastructure must also detail their IT environments to the government under legislation passed in 2018.
Justin Hendry contributed to this report.

ACT govt urged to improve data security after shocker audit – Strategy – Security- Tempemail – Blog – 10 minute

The ACT government has been told to lift its data security game after the territory’s auditor-general raised serious concerns with its policies and the data handling practices of public servants. 
The audit of the territory’s data security practices also reveals that the government is without a government-wide data breach response plan, despite suffering a breach as recently as late 2018. 
The report, released on Friday, is highly critical of the ACT public sector’s compliance with mandatory requirements under the government’s ICT security policy. 
The policy, which was refreshed last August, requires that directorates and agencies comply on an annual basis to assist whole-of-government data security management.  
But there is currently not requirement for them to demonstrate their compliance with the ICT security policy, unlike the reporting under the ACT protective security policy framework. 
As such, the audit found that compliance with the ICT security policy is not effective and that agencies have “not clearly understood their data security risks and requirements”. 
“By not complying with the ICT security policy requirements, the ACT public service is not well placed to understand what data agencies are responsible for, the risks of this data being breached and controls to be implemented across government to manage this risk,” the audit states. 
The audit, which was released the same day as the Prime Minister’s cyber security plea, said all but a single agency had effectively documented its system security risks, and that was for a single system.  
In total, 89 percent of critical IT systems were without a current “security risk management plan that demonstrated and documented data security risks and controls”. 
While much of the blame in this area was levelled at agencies, the audit was also critical of the government’s shared services arm, which despite having effective tools and processes in place, is “experiencing a significant backlog of security assessments”. 
It found that Shared Services, on average, takes over three months to commence a critical IT system security assessment and a further eight months to complete a critical IT system security risk management plan. 
The audit also said that the government was without “whole-of-government data breach response plan to manage and coordinate resources and stakeholders in the event of a major data breach”, though there are currently plans for such a document. 
“Following a significant data breach of the ACT Government’s online directory in November 2018 the Security and Emergency Management Senior Officials Group reviewed roles and responsibilities for cyber security across the ACT Government network,” the audit states. 
“The security and emergency management senior officials group intends that these actions will be completed by July 2020.” 
The audit also found that individual agencies “are not well placed to response to a data breach or loss of system availability and need to invest more effort in documenting and testing how to restore functionality of critical business systems”. 
This risk of a potential data breach is also aggravated by what the audit said was a lack of data security awareness among public servants stemming from a lack of education. 
“A particular area of risk note is a lack of user education on how to use data securely,” the report states. 
“A lack of awareness has been demonstrated in a lack of understanding on how to share data securely, as well as recognised when a data breach has occurred and needs to be reported. 
“This increases the likelihood of a data breach and its potential impact.” 
While the audit noted that staff in the Community Services Directorate were found to “demonstrate a good understanding of what data was considered sensitive personal information”, this was not the case for all agencies. 
“Users in other audited agencies did not demonstrate an awareness of the risks associated with sensitive personal information, and of sharing this data via email or USB drives and were also unaware of the acceptable file sharing mechanisms that are available to them,” the audit states. 
The audit also found that unauthorised cloud-based IT services are continuing to be used by public servants, which it said “presents a risk to ACT government agencies’ data security”. 
This is despite the IT security policy requiring that all IT systems, including cloud services, be registered with Shared Services, which it has not been able to successfully maintain. 
“Typically, these cloud-based services are identified and downloaded by ACT government agencies’ employees,” the audit states, adding that the software is largely for “image and document conversion”. 
“The use of these services presents a risk of exposing sensitive data to cloud-based service providers with unknown data security protections, as well as licencing and legislative compliance risk.” 
Shared Services has also been working with directorates to map cloud services and other IT systems across government and identify any shadow IT since receiving funding in 2018. 
It is now preparing to ramp up this work, with new functionality being implemented to automatically discover IT systems and assets across the government’s IT network. 
“Until this is successfully implemented and producing the expected results, there will not be a collective and comprehensive understanding of ICT systems across ACT Government and therefore accountabilities for data assets,” the audit states.

NSW govt pours $1.6 billion into digital – Strategy- Tempemail – Blog – 10 minute

The NSW government will pour $1.6 billion into its digital-centric investment fund to accelerate IT projects and bolster cyber security over the next three years.
Premier Gladys Berejiklian revealed the landmark funding on Thursday alongside Treasurer Dominic Perrottet and Customer Service Minister Victor Dominello. 
The investment, which will be provided over three years, includes $1 billion in new funding and $600 million in savings redirected from agencies. 
It will flow into the state’s ‘digital restart fund’, which was established with an initial investment of $100 million in last year’s budget, to accelerate government-wide digital projects. 
The fund was introduced to help the government transition toward a contemporary IT funding model, which other jurisdictions, including the federal government, are now looking at copying. 
Berejiklian said the new funding would allow the government to “turbocharge digital projects” and improve NSW’s standing as one as the leading digital governments in Australia. 
“We are leading the country on digital transformation and this investment will cement our reputation as a world leader in technology and innovation,” she said. 
“We are already using technology to make life easier for customers. Whether it’s the Digital Driver Licence, Energy Switch or Park’nPay, our digital products provide added choice and convenience.” 
The funding will include $240 million – or $60 million a year – to improve the government’s cyber security capability, building on the last significant funding provided in 2018. 
It will go towards securing existing systems, deploying new technologies and increasing the government’s cyber workforce. 
Cyber security continues to be a thorn in the side for what is otherwise a leading digital state, with most agencies struggling to meet new requirements under the government’s cyber security policy. 
The funding will allow more government services to be brought online via Service NSW, as well as improve the “digital experience across agencies, including in education and health”. 
At $240 million over four years, Dominello said the new funding was the “biggest single cyber security investment in national history” – the federal government’s 2016 investment was $230 over four years. 
He said the funding will “strengthen the government’s capacity to detect and respond to the fast-moving cyber threat landscape” and make NSW the “cyber security capital of the Southern Hemisphere” 
“We are leading the nation on bricks and mortar infrastructure and this historic investment will positon us to develop a world leading cyber security industry and be a jobs hub for this critical multi-billion-dollar sector,” Dominello said. 
Perrottet said the “record investment in technology recognises that digital infrastructure is as important as transport infrastructure to the state’s economic growth”. 
“We must be fast followers in the digital revolution to accelerate agility, lift productivity and generate the jobs of tomorrow,” he said.

Macquarie Telecom to build govt data centre in Canberra – Hardware – Networking- Tempemail – Blog – 10 minute

Macquarie Telecom will invest $17 million into a new data centre in Canberra to meet rising demand for cloud and cyber security services from government agencies.
The company behind Macquarie Government on Tuesday said the inital investment would go towards the construction of a 1.5 megawatt (MW) facility, with work expected to begin in July. 
The new data centre, dubbed Intellicentre 5 (IC5), will increase the capacity of Macquarie’s Canberra campus to 4MW once completed in December. 
It will sit alongside the company’s existing Intellicentre 4 (IC4) facility, and will be expanded further in the future if required. 
The company pointed to the “significant expansion of Macquarie’s Government business in recent months” as a reason for the new investment. 
It said that “42 percent of agencies and personnel [are] now using its cyber security, secure internet gateway (SIG) and cloud services”. 
The Australia Taxation Office is one of those agencies; it selected MacTel to provide secure internet gateway (SIG) and cyber security services for at least the next three years in December. 
Macquarie Telecom managing director Aidan Tudehope said the new facility will serve the requirements of government as the adoption of cloud and cyber services continues to accelerate.
“Risk to government of a cyber breach and the dependency on cloud services are at an all-time high – we’re not just going to return to the ‘norm’ after this pandemic, and facilities of this calibre are an essential requirement in Canberra,” he said. 
“Government departments need to have clarity over data sovereignty – who controls the data, where does it reside, and who has access.  
“We cover these bases by ensuring Australian control and access only by Australian Government-cleared specialists.”  
Like IC4, the new facility will have “the latest physical and virtual security and compliance credentials to manage Government cloud workloads at the protected, secret and above levels”. 
“These include being designed to achieve Tier IV data centre standards, being SCEC Zone 5 ready, and retaining 120 plus NV1 government-cleared engineers,” the company said. 
Tudehope said the IC5 South Bunker would also provide a “safe haven for agencies that don’t want all their eggs in one basket”, by allowing agencies to split data “between our facilities or other providers”. 
The new data centre will also create a number of new permanent temporary jobs across cyber security, engineering and construction. 
Assistant Minister for Finance, Charities and Electoral Matters Zed Seselja said the new data centre “will not only create valuable jobs, but build sovereign security skills and capabilities”. 
The investment will make use of the government’s instant asset write-off and backing business investment – two coronavirus stimulus measures introduced for businesses.
Together with the build of its IC3 hyperscale facility at Macquarie Park in Sydney, MacTel said it will inject around $100 million into the economy this year.
