CyberGym comes to Docklands

04 May 2017

Israel’s cyber-security leader, CyberGym, last month relocated its global headquarters to the Goods Shed in Docklands.

The Goods Shed became an international cyber-security hub in November, when Minister for Small Business and Innovation, Philip Dalidakis, announced it was home to the Oceania Cyber Security Centre and CSIRO’s Data61 Cyber Security and Innovation Hub.

CyberGym is a cyber defence organisation that provides comprehensive IT security services and real-world cyber defence training to assist organisations in improving their cyber security.

CyberGym’s arrival in Docklands contributes to Melbourne’s status as the first cyber-ready city in Australia. The Goods Shed has become the centre of Australia’s biggest cyber security cluster.

Cyber security training includes simulating cyber attacks and teaching staff how to mitigate attacks and create resilience.

Mr Dalidakis said CyberGym would elevate Australia’s cyber security level and open up more employment opportunities.

“We will continue to pursue investment from companies like CyberGym that will grow our cyber security sector and not only help safeguard our digital economy but create more jobs into the future,” he said.

“Victoria is already home to the largest cluster of cyber security organisations and businesses in the country.”

Mr Dalidakis also signed agreements to partner with global research powerhouses Oxford University’s Global Cyber Security Capacity Centre, Israel’s Tel Aviv University and the Commonwealth of Virginia.

In 2015, statistics showed that Cybercrime affected 46 per cent of small and medium Australian businesses and cost the economy approximately $17 billion.

CyberGym’s chief executive Ofir Hason said: “Our cyber security defence and IT services and training are world-leading and we look forward to stepping into the Australian market and helping local companies and government better safeguard themselves against future attacks.”
