The Essential 8
It was 4, now its 8, are you protected?

Recently the Australian Signals Directorate (ASD) has undertaken a revamp of its top 4 strategies also known as (Catch, Patch & Match) to mitigate targeted cyber intrusions, doubling the core security controls to eight and increasing its reach to cover a wider threat range than just "targeted" attacks.

The revised Essential 8 builds on the ASD’s original top 4 to mitigate risks against cyber-attacks adding ways to reduce known threat vectors and incorporating elements of disaster recovery.

Join David Caddick, Security Engineer, as we explore the Essential 8.
