National Strategy for Identity Resilience
On 23 June 2023, the Data and Digital Ministers Meeting (DDMM) announced the release of the National Strategy for Identity Resilience (the Strategy). We developed the Strategy in close collaboration with Commonwealth, state and territory agencies. It demonstrates the commitment of all Australian governments to strengthen identity infrastructure and build resilient identities that are hard to steal. If they are stolen, they are easy to restore.
The Strategy consists of ten principles to guide identity resilience. It includes immediate, medium, and long term initiatives that will strengthen identity security arrangements across jurisdictions.
Designed for government agencies, the Strategy can also serve as a benchmark for private sector organisations, particularly those providing identity related services to, or in conjunction with, government agencies.
