The state government will invest more than $25 million to strengthen cyber security services in Western Australia.

The $25.5 million funding boost is part of the state government’s $500 million digital capability fund.

It will be used to transform the Office of Digital Government’s cyber security unit into the largest dedicated cyber security team in WA.

The investment includes a roll out of additional cyber security services across the public sector and a new dedicated home for the Cyber Security Operations centre.

Innovation and ICT minister Stephen Dawson said cyber threats have continued to evolve.

“The expansion of cyber services across the public sector will generate local jobs and entry-level opportunities for Western Australians looking to get into cyber security sector,” he said.

“The Office of Digital Government is leading and coordinating digital transformation across government to improve service delivery for all Western Australians.

“I encourage all qualified cyber security individuals to apply for these important roles within the state government.”
