The Essential Eight is the name given to an evolving set of risk management recommendations developed by the Australian Cyber Security Centre (ACSC).
These recommendations provide effective strategies to prevent and minimise the impact of cybersecurity attacks and support businesses in the recovery process.
Eight risk management mitigation activities your company should be performing today at a bare minimum level.
The Essential Eight is not a stand-alone cyber security framework in itself. It targets a set of practical, or 'essential' control areas that can reduce significant amounts of possible data breaches.
Developed by the ACSC in an effort to improve the cyber resilience of Australian businesses, for both Government and private sector.
Organisations are recommended to implement Essential Eight mitigation strategies drawn from the ACSC's Strategies to Mitigate Cyber Security Incidents as baseline.
Each control area is strategically grouped to provide optimal reduction of risk, allowing security teams to address high-risk areas and prioritise program effort.
Some key business benefits and reasoning for why your business should consider implementing the Essential Eight. These include:
This is why 3 Lights has developed our Essential Eight Posture Assessment, designed specifically to provide you with the right starting point from which to develop and implement an effective control framework, that significantly reduces the risk of cyber events.
At 3 Lights we believe that visibility and establishing a posture baseline are the first steps on your journey to reducing risk through Essential Eight controls.
Our approach is simple: we focus on three fundamental principles:
Our Essential Eight Posture Assessment provides a tailored set of recommendations and implementation guidance for each of the Essential Eight mitigation strategies.
To help break down the findings into an easy, actionable program, a high-level roadmap is sequenced into priority focused areas based on risk (impact and likelihood), anticipated user friction and budgetary estimates to implement.
