The Australian Cybersecurity Landscape

The pandemic has forced many organisations to accelerate their digital transformation as employees transitioned to working remotely. This has bought on an array of new challenges, creating significant vulnerabilities to organisations.

Most notable, the ACSC reported an increase in cybercrime, with a cyber attacks occurring every 8 minutes over the 2020-21 financial year, compared to one every 10 minutes in the previous financial year. Cyberattacks have also become increasingly sophisticated, posing significant implications to organisations from not only disruptions to operations, but also exposing them to a number of legal, compliance and reputational damage, as well as financial loss.

With ongoing threats of cyberattacks and rise in cybercrime, organisations should review their information security strategy to ensure adequate measures are in place to detect, mitigate and respond to an attack.

Strengthening Your Information Security Management System with ISO 27001

While tools and technology can be used to help protect an organisation’s information, it is not foolproof or equipped to manage information security risks.

For cybersecurity to be effective, organisations must also consider how they will leverage people and processes.

ISO 27001 Information Security Management Systems Standard focuses on people and processes as much as technology and software. It enables organisations to align with global best-practice for information security management, providing a robust and practical framework to assist in improving information security while focusing on the protection of information confidentiality, integrity, and availability.
