FAQs - Essential 8 Compliance

Why is network security so important?

Keeping your network safe is a crucial part of your cyber security plan. Strong network security protects your business data from potential intrusions and threats, which often result in data breaches if left unattended.

Good network security takes a multi-layer approach, addressing areas such as user network settings and utilising the correct software and solutions.

Proper configuration ensures that attempts to gain access via malware, phishing attempts and other types of cyber attacks are prevented, or detected before they can access your network. This means that your sensitive business information is kept safe from unauthorised sources.

What is Essential 8 compliance?

Essential 8 is a range of strategies brought in by the ACSC to address the prevalence of cyber attacks on Australian businesses. It has guidelines in different areas of online security to ensure that your business has the right strategies in place to stay protected from cyber threats.

Essential 8 Compliance is showing that your business has met these requirements. Compliance requirements depend on the size and type of business you have, and there are specific protocols for some industries and those that handle highly sensitive data.

There are different levels of compliance, too, from Zero to Three. Level Zero indicates a company has not yet met basic compliance, whereas Level Three indicates an organisation has met a larger range of compliance considerations. Most businesses in Australia are required to have Level One at this time, which we can help you achieve.

What are managed cyber security services?
