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.

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.
