The ASD Essential Eight Explained – eBook

The Evolving Cybersecurity Threat

The last few decades have seen dramatic changes in the world of business. Today, organisations generate immense volumes of data, operate in an increasingly mobile environment and have become overwhelmingly dependent on connectivity and the cloud. This rapid pace of digital development has and will continue to change the way businesses operate – it’s an exciting time for innovation and disruption.

However, with this evolution comes new risks. Businesses now face a completely new world of sophisticated cybersecurity issues – both external threats and internal vulnerabilities that continue to evolve.

For all organisations, implementing systems that minimise the impact of a cyberattack should be a high priority. Experience has shown that being proactive can save considerable time, money, effort and reputational harm compared to cleaning up after the damage has already been done.

Authored by Logan Daley, Information Assurance Specialist at Data#3, this collection of works deep dives into the practical actions organisations can take to make their networks more secure in an era of ever-changing threats.

In clear language, we discuss the Australian Signals Directorate’s (ASD) Essential Eight strategies to mitigate cybersecurity incidents along with the who, what, where and why of successful implementation.
