Australia Seeks to Hire Cybersecurity Professionals - top government contractors - best government contracting eventCyber experts in the United States consistently bemoan the dearth of skilled cyber professionals to fill the ranks as ‘cyber warriors.’ The Department of Homeland Security has advertised positions for cyber professionals via their website since the end of last year.

The Australian government is experiencing a similar shortage of skilled cyber professionals. The Australian Department of Defence has advertised for a series of senior cyber positions with the Australian Defence Force Computer Security Incident Response Team.

Position titles include: cyber security incident manager, cyber security analyst, cyber network operations manager and tactical cyber intelligence manager. The pay scale runs significantly higher than other positions, ranging from $68,000 to $97,000.

The move is part of a larger trend towards increased awareness of the threat from cyberspace. Earlier this year, the Australian government was hit in a distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack by the disparate hacker group Anonymous. The Cyber Security Operations Centre (CSOC) helped the government to mitigate the effects of the attack.

The CSOC is part of the Defence Signals Directorate and looks to “provides government with a comprehensive understanding of cyber threats against Australian interests and coordinates operational responses to cyber events of national importance across government and critical infrastructure,” according to the CSOC website.
