Make your mark in the cyber and national security sector

  • Drive news and analysis on an exciting new media platform dedicated to the fast-paced world of cyber security and national security
  • Create content that supports decision making and strategy across Australia’s business and government sectors
  • Be part of the team at one of Australia’s top media innovators

The Opportunity

Australia is set to transform into a leading digital economy within the next decade, and cyber security will be critical in ensuring the nation’s success.

Take a lead role on a media platform that sets out to equip Australian businesses across the spectrum to meet the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead as the nation digitises. Make a name for yourself and have an impact on the nation’s ability to safeguard against hostile state sponsored and criminal cyber-attacks.

The Platform

In an increasingly complex and hostile climate the battlefield has been set around cyber security. It is therefore little surprise that the federal government will invest $1.67 billion over the coming decade to support a more secure cyber future for Australia.

Reflecting the rapidly changing landscape and a greater need for dedicated information, insights and market intelligence, Momentum Media developed Cyber Security Connect.

We are seeking a News Editor to join our highly energised, talented and committed editorial team across our defence and security portfolio to help drive our continued success plus expend our offering for our readers.

You will contribute to all aspects of the production cycle, including writing, subbing, features meetings, attending industry events and more.

It’s a hands-on role where you’ll connect with business leaders, government officials, defence and military leaders, ministers, senators and other senior parliamentary officials plus large global and Australian and global cyber companies, think tanks, SMEs, academics and research institutions.

  • Write original features and longer-form content
  • Build and leverage a professional network
  • Engage with senior decision makers and other sector stakeholders
