CIVSEC 2018 INNOVATION AWARDS

Welcome to the CIVSEC 2018 Innovation Awards page!

Applications for the CIVSEC 2018 Innovation Awards are now open.

The Awards recognise and reward innovation by Australian individuals and organisations in products, services and business processes in the Cyber Security, Physical Security & Policing and the Disaster Relief, Emergency Management & Humanitarian fields. These represent the ‘fourth arm’ of Australian security: the protection of communities and national populations - those vital areas which can’t be addressed by the uniformed Australian Defence Force alone. There are two cash awards of $15,000 each, one for the most innovative Small to Medium Enterprise (SME) and one for the most promising Young Innovator.

The Awards will be presented for the first time by the Chairman of Industry Defence and Security Australia Limited during the CIVSEC 2018 Congress in Melbourne, 1-3 May. Nominations will open on 18 December 2017, closing at Close of Business on 12 March 2018. A shortlist of candidates will be drawn up by 2 April 2018 and the judging panel will deliver its recommendation to the IDSAL Board by 9 April.

Six awards will be presented in total for the following categories:

  • CIVSEC 2018 Innovation Award for Cyber Security
  • CIVSEC 2018 Innovation Award for Physical Security & Policing
  • CIVSEC 2018 Innovation Award for Disaster Relief, Emergency Management and Humanitarian Services
  • CIVSEC 2018 Young Innovator Award
  • CIVSEC 2018 National Innovation Award for Civil Security
  • CIVSEC 2018 SME Innovation Grant for Civil Security


The SME Innovation Grant and Young Innovator Award are worth $15,000 each.

It is not necessary to submit an entry specifically for the National Innovation Award for Civil Security and the SME Innovation Grant. The winners of the National Innovation Award for Civil Security and the SME Innovation Grant for Civil Security will be selected by the judges from all of the entrants in each of the major categories: Cyber Security, Physical Security & Policing, and Disaster Relief, Emergency Management and Humanitarian Services.

By entering in one of the three major categories, you are automatically a candidate for one or other of the two Civil Security Awards, depending on whether you are an SME or not.

Potential entrants for the Young Innovator Award should seek out the Eligibility Criteria and Entry Forms elsewhere on this web page.
