Cyber Security Challenge Australia

The Cyber Security Challenge is an annual competition run by an alliance of Australian Government, business and academic professionals. The competition has been run each year since 2012.

The competition, led by PM&C, is open to full-time Australian university undergraduates and undergraduate-equivalent TAFE students based in Australia. Each team may contain up to four students.

PM&C is also exploring a number of exciting opportunities to expand the Cyber Security Challenge Australia to encourage students from all disciplines to consider cyber security careers.

We are also working with our international partners, particularly New Zealand, on international dimensions to the Challenge.

For full details, terms and conditions, and the rules for eligibility, visit the Cyber Security Challenge Australia website.
