Policy and Standards
ANCI develops leading policy and standards by leveraging the insights of its diverse membership base, who contribute to the organisations mission through its unique expert and advisory panels.
ANCIs capability to develop and test policy positions is underpinned by:
- The active participation of ANCI and CREST ANZ members in expert and advisory panels;
- ANCI’s Policy Council (APC) which considers and develops policy proposals by working with our various expert and advisory panels;
- Connecting and networking with like-minded members across a range of diverse industry sectors to leverage the collective wisdom, capability and experience of the community in defining and responding to Australia’s cyber security needs;
- Shared best practices, thought leadership, education, innovative approaches, the latest trends as well as discuss shared challenges, failures and learnings;
- Relationships with federal government departments, Senators, Members of the House of Representatives and staff of these elected officials to formulate policy from an educated and informed perspective.
Together, we aim to develop policy and standards that enable the cyber security sector to tackle systemic and individual business issues.
Expert and Advisory Panels
ANCI works to a expert and advisory panel structure that helps us identify and prosecute issues particular to major market sectors. This panel structure enables members to:
- connect and network with like-minded members across a range of diverse industry sectors to leverage the collective wisdom, capability and experience of the community.
- share best practices, thought leadership, education, innovative approaches and stay abreast of the latest trends.
- discuss challenges, failures and learnings – effectively, a sounding board for ideas exchange.
- make consistent decisions concerning services for members and core policy positions for advocating the cyber industry.
As a consequence, ANCI’s panel structure is the key vehicle for developing policy, standards, solutions and member services. Panels may draw heavily on policy proposals and research undertaken by ANCI staff, but the responsibility for determining policy and standards rests with the committees. By working to a sector then national panel structure, which relies on member representation, ANCI ensures that our members’ unique needs are understood and translated to policy, standards and advocacy initiatives.
Participating members of sector committees are also members of ANCI’s Policy Council (APC). APC considers and develops policy proposals by working with our various panels.
