NSW Government announces cyber security chief

The NSW Government today announced the appointment of Dr Maria Milosavljevic as the new Government Chief Information Security Officer (GCISO).

Dr Milosavljevic will work across the NSW Government and consult with industry leaders and research groups, as well as Commonwealth, State and overseas Governments to ensure a collaborative approach to cyber security.

Dr Milosavljevic will develop a set of standards with NSW Government agencies, streamlining the cyber security approach across government.

“I’m excited to welcome Dr Milosavljevic as the new GCISO and I look forward to working with her on strengthening the NSW Government cyber security network,” Minister for Finance, Services and Property Victor Dominello said.

“Cyber risk and security has emerged as one of the most high profile, borderless and rapidly evolving risks facing Government, so the GCISO position is vital to strengthening the NSW Government’s cyber security.”

Dr Milosavljevic joins the NSW Government from AUSTRAC, where she held the position of Chief Information Security Officer and Chief Innovation Officer. Dr Milosavljevic also held a number of senior roles in the private sector and has been an Adjunct Professor at the University of Canberra.
