The Australian Signals Directorate (ASD) – previously known as the Defense Signals Directorate – has developed a list of strategies to mitigate targeted cyber intrusions. In 2017, the ASD published the four additional recommendations to add to the top-four, creating the Essential Eight. This guidance promotes the adoption of sound security and operational practices for managing technology used within Australian Government Agencies, including: asset discovery and risk assessment, vulnerability and configuration scanning, risk and patch prioritization and remediation, privileged account management, endpoint and data protection.
