Who is recommending this framework?

➢ Australian Cyber Security Centre is part of the Australian Signal Directorate (ASD)

What is the Framework?
ASD Essential Eight is a prioritized list of mitigation strategies to assist organizations in protecting their infrastructure and data.

Organizations are recommended to implement eight essential mitigation strategies as a baseline. Once organisations have implemented their desired mitigation strategies to an initial level, they should focus on increasing the maturity of their implementation such that they eventually reach full alignment with the intent of each mitigation strategy.

Maturity levels

• There are four Maturity Levels (0-3) that focus on the sophistication of the attacker
• It is up to the organisation to determine the sophistication of a potential adversary
and prepare accordingly
• Things your customers might consider
– their desirability
– their requirement for the confidentiality of their data
– the requirement for the availability and integrity of their systems and data

Essential Eight

“Following a review in Cyber resilience the Australian government moves to mandate the essential 8 security
recommendations for all federal departments and agencies as proposed by ACSC (Australian Cyber Security Centre).”
