The Hub has an important part to play in ensuring that the benefits from the growth of the cyber security market are seen across the Western Australian economy.
Our goal is to see Australia become an international leader, by increasing our share of the USD$130 billion (and quickly growing!) cyber security market.
How The Hub facilitates commercialisation
In 2017, Australia's revenue from cyber security was around AU$2 billion - but the opportunity to grow that is vast.
The Hub supports Western Australian startups, scaleups and companies looking to:
- Advocacy for local procurement reform
- Grow export capability to the United States, the ASEAN region and the United Kingdom
- Partner with local innovation partners such as Curtin Ignition and West Tech Fest
- Develop product and service models
Through AustCybers Cyber Security Sector Competitiveness Plan, it’s been identified that the most competitive and opportune areas of focus for Australia are in cyber security software and services.
