Critical Infrastructure Centre

The Critical Infrastructure Centre, located within the Department of Home Affairs, works across all levels of government, and with owners and operators to identify and manage the risks to Australia’s critical infrastructure.

Next Steps in protecting our Critical Infrastructure – design of rules

On 10 December 2020, the Minister for Home Affairs introduced the Security Legislation Amendment (Critical Infrastructure) Bill 2020 to Parliament, which seeks to amend the Security of Critical Infrastructure Act 2018. The Bill is currently being considered by Parliamentary Committee on Intelligence and Security.

The Department is now looking to work with industry to design the rules that will underpin the Critical Infrastructure Risk Management Program element of the new legislation. Please click here to learn how you can be involved.
