New Zealand's Cyber Security Strategy 2019
Enabling New Zealand to thrive online
Minister of Broadcasting, Communications and Digital Media, Hon Kris Faafoi, released the latest Cyber Security Strategy on 2 July 2019.
Cyber-enabled threats to New Zealand’s security continue to grow in number, scope and scale. The Cyber Security Strategy 2019 outlines the areas where Government will prioritise action and how we will work together with individuals, businesses, and communities to ensure that New Zealand is confident and secure in the digital world.
The refreshed strategy has five priority areas, that build on the previous strategy while reflecting current cyber security challenges:
- Cyber security aware and active citizens
- Strong and capable cyber security workforce and ecosystem
- Internationally active
- Resilient and responsive New Zealand
- Proactively tackle cybercrime.
The strategy has four values:
- Partnerships are crucial
- People are secure and human rights are respected online
- Economic growth is enhanced
- National security is protected.
- The Application of International Law to State Activity in Cyberspace (Government statement)
