Improve your school’s Essential 8 maturity with Data#3 and Microsoft

Many organisations struggle with their cybersecurity posture. Some have managed to arrive at a state of awareness, but very few have progressed to taking definitive action.

The ACSC’s Essential Eight (E8) go a long way to bridging the void between awareness and action – making it much harder for adversaries to compromise your systems.

In partnership with Microsoft, Data#3 presented a virtual update on the recent introduction of an Essential Eight Maturity Model.

Hear from industry experts and cybersecurity specialists on how you can take practical steps to improve your schools’ E8 maturity over time, in-line with your investment in Microsoft technologies.

This session covered:

  • Security licensing options.
  • Recent changes to the Essential Eight Framework.
  • Aligning Essential Eight controls to your Microsoft investments.
  • Next steps to bridging the void between awareness and action.

Combining the experience of a dedicated strategic consulting team, and hands-on Data#3 cybersecurity specialists; Data#3 is well positioned to bring people, process and policy together to help you advance your cyber maturity in-line with the ASD E8 framework.
