IT Security Expert Advisory Group (ITSEAG)

The IT Security Expert Advisory Group (ITSEAG) provides advice to the TISN on emerging IT security issues that will impact on Australia’s critical infrastructure sectors. It also oversights the TISN’s Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) Community of Interest (COI). The ITSEAG membership consists of IT security experts from industry, Australian academia and the Australian Government. The ITSEAG has been formed to facilitate the consideration of IT security issues in relation to critical infrastructure resilience. The discussions include:

  • the dependence on IT within critical infrastructure
  • emerging IT security issues for IT systems supporting critical infrastructure
  • the efficacy of risk mitigation strategies for IT systems
  • the available IT security resources within Australia, including skills, products, services and research.

The ITSEAG have developed a range of papers to assist critical infrastructure owners and operators. These papers can be accessed below



This Expert Advisory Group receives secretariat support from the Department of Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy.
