In 2002, the Australian Federal Government established a task force called the Communications Sector Infrastructure Assurance Advisory Group (CSIAAG) within the Trusted Information Sharing Network for Australia's critical infrastructure sectors. This organization was founded to investigate how information can be better shared within Australia's communications sector, in order to mitigate threats and vulnerabilities to crucial communications infrastructure and support the continuity of critical services to the community. The Advisory Group is now known simply as the Communications Sector Group (CSG).
he CSG comprises representatives from various Government departments, and representatives from companies within each of the four main sub-sectors of the communications industry — broadcast, telecommunications, postal, and submarine cable.
