These agencies generally operate outside the public eye. They possess significant powers and are subject to carefully designed oversight and accountability.

To help understand the roles and responsibilities of these agencies and how they are supervised and regulated, this chart that summarizes the key information and provides links to more details.

Security of Critical Infrastructure Compliance Work flow
(June 2022)

 

The Security of Critical Infrastructure Act 2018 creates a regulatory framework for protection of critical Australian Infrastructure. The regulatory framework requires owners and controllers to report their interest to Home Affairs. Entities responsible for Critical Infrastructure Assets must report operational arrangements, cyber incidents and (when the rules are ready) must adopt and report regarding a Risk Management Program.

 

The Security of Critical Infrastructure Compliance Workflow summarizes the requirements of the Scheme. The  workflow does not include the rules for Systems of National Significance nor summarise the wide rang of regulatory powers which may be exercised in relation to responsible entities by the Department of Home Affairs.
