The Essential 8

Essential 8 Planning

The Essential 8 are a collection of strategies composed by the Australian Cyber Security Centre aimed at giving Australian businesses the best chance of success in mitigating a cybersecurity incident. These strategies are not guaranteed to completely protect a business from suffering a malicious attack, as there is currently no such silver bullet in the cybersecurity environment, but by following their recommendations, businesses can greatly reduce the likelihood of incurring substantial loss from an attack, and will spend much less time in recovery mode.

Unfortunately, interpreting and implementing these strategies can be difficult for those who have not spent any time in the IT field. That’s where One IT Services can help! Our team of experienced analysts and Engineers can identify where and how in your particular business and technology environment the Essential 8 can best be put in place, and develop a plan with you to ensure that recommendations for ongoing action (such as system patching) are completed in a timely fashion. We can also educate your users in how to follow security best-practices, further reducing the chance that your business will fall victim to malicious outside influences.
