The Australian National University says
In a globalised world, no island is an island. Supply line security is critical to Australia’s strategic interests, our quality of life and our prosperity. When access to energy, markets or information is threatened our ability to defend ourselves or even maintain sovereignty can be put at risk. Australia’s Indo-Pacific geography generates unique challenges in the maritime space in regards to border security, access to trade, resource protection and the maintenance of a rules-based regional order. But as a highly developed nation with a service-based economy, our great reliance on access to information and data flow is also intrinsic in Australia's ability to secure its national interests.

In this seminar, Professor Rory Medcalf, Michelle Price and Dr Adam Henschke discuss how we can best protect Australia’s cyber and maritime lifelines. Central to this will be to identify what the primary challenges are and the relevant policy options available to secure our vital national interests in these arenas.

The National Security College thanks our friends at the Perth USAsia Centre for their support and assistance in arranging this joint event on Australia’s national security.
