Effective security is a priority for many organisations, but its implementation can be obstructed by uncertainty and a lack of reliable resources. As reported data breaches from malicious attacks are increasing, security is becoming a priority for many – but it can be difficult to know where to begin when protecting your organisation, employees, and clients.
Implementing the Essential 8 is a good starting point. Recommended by Victoria’s auditor-general, the Essential 8 are essential mitigation strategies which aid in protecting organisations from cyber security incidents, including cyber attacks from external parties, ransomware, and data breaches. The Essential 8 can also be enacted in stages, allowing for customisable levels of security depending on your organisation’s specific needs.
Maintaining healthy IT systems is like maintaining any other kind of health – prevention is better than cure. Begin today with the ACSC’s guidance.
