The PNG National Cyber Security Center (NCSC) protects critical information infrastructure, monitors and responds to cyber threats, provides guidance on cybersecurity, and promotes awareness of risks and best practices. The NCSC is vital for safeguarding PNG's digital assets and promoting a secure digital ecosystem.
Cyber safety is important because cyber threats such as hacking, malware, and identity theft can cause financial and reputational damage to individuals and organizations. Cyber safety involves promoting a culture of security awareness and education, which can help prevent or reduce cyber attacks. The DICT works closely with NICTA, the National Censorship Office, and bilateral partners to provide awareness.
