Cybersecurity Defense Tips from Australia

Often we talk about specific products or tools that can help protect our assets, but we rarely talk about the best strategies to implement in a mature cybersecurity environment.

The United States is often seen as the forefront of cybersecurity defense but our Australian friends have created and implemented some very good techniques and strategies for defense. The below blog details the mitigation and detection strategies.

The Australian Signals Directorate (ASD) has developed prioritised mitigation strategies to help technical cybersecurity professionals in all organisations mitigate cybersecurity incidents. This guidance addresses targeted cyber intrusions (e.g. executed by advanced persistent threats such as foreign intelligence services), ransomware and external adversaries with destructive intent, malicious insiders, ‘business email compromise’ and industrial control systems.

As always, please contact us with any technical questions.
