    The New South Wales government has launched Cyber Security NSW in a bid to consolidate and lift the cyber capability of state entities.

    To be led by chief cybersecurity officer Tony Chapman, who will perform the functions previously undertaken by the NSW government chief information security officer, Cyber Security NSW will sit within the Department of Customer Service.

    According to state government chief information and digital officer Greg Wells, the new initiative will "cement the leadership and coordination role needed to enhance cybersecurity and related decision-making across the NSW government".
