Australia has appointed its first-ever ambassador for cyber affairs.

Dr Tobias Feakin will fill the inaugural position from January as part of the federal government's $230 million cyber security strategy.

The academic, who has been the director of national security programs at the Australian Strategic Policy Institute since 2012, will work with other countries to strengthen the region's response to cybercrime and advocate against state censorship of the internet.
