Australian organisations are being targeted by a sophisticated state-based cyber actor. Organisations across a range of sectors are being targeted, including all levels of government, industry, political organisations, education, health, essential service providers, and operators of other critical infrastructure.
Businesses should be aware of the risks of cyber attack and understand how to take protective action.
Australian organisations who might be concerned about their vulnerability to sophisticated cyber compromise can take three simple steps to protect themselves:
- Patch your internet facing devices promptly – ensuring any web or email servers are fully updated with the latest software.
- Ensure you use multifactor authentication to secure your internet accessible infrastructure and cloud-based platforms.
- Become an Australian Cyber Security Centre (ACSC) partner to ensure you get the latest cyber threat advice so you can take the earliest possible action to protect yourself online.
