Australian Foreign Minister Marise Payn and British Foreign Secretary Liz Truss signed a Cyber and Critical Technology Partnership in Sydney, the latest accord in Australia, the United States, and the United Kingdom’s trilateral security cooperation. Australia and the UK have accepted the goal of harnessing technology to safeguard liberal democratic ideals and strengthen their national security, economies, and culture. During the early stages of the collaboration, the alliance will aim to boost cyber response capabilities in the Indo-Pacific region, raise the cost of hostile state cyber activities, develop a global standard-setting action plan, and advance the Women in Cyber agenda.

The UK is dedicated to developing a network of liberty, promoting democracy through assisting nations in the Indo-Pacific in addressing their development requirements. On Friday, Australia’s defence and foreign affairs ministers will meet with Britain’s defence secretary, Ben Wallace, who has stated that the countries are prepared to counter state cyberattacks from Russia, China, and Iran.

Earlier this year, the UK’s National Cyber Security Centre predicted that it would deal with a record number of cyberattacks in 2021, with the majority of them coming from Russia. Likewise, the United States and a coalition of allies and the United Kingdom and Australia accused China this week of a global cyber hacking effort. China and Russia have consistently denied charges of cyberattacks, while Iran has denied involvement in cyberattacks in Australia.
