ACSC Essential Eight Practices Guidance For Australian Business


ACSC Essential Eight Practices Guidance For Australian Business

Cyber risk is the leading risk for Australian SME’s with the average cost of a cyber incident in excess of $270,000 and over 200 hours to recover.  Cybercrime continues to be a challenge for business owners meaning cyber insurance is no longer a luxury, it’s a must-have.

While no set of mitigation strategies are guaranteed to protect against all cyber threats, organisations are recommended to implement eight essential mitigation strategies from the ACSC’s Strategies to Mitigate Cyber Security Incidents as a baseline. This baseline, known as the Essential Eight, makes it much harder for adversaries to compromise systems.
