The Essential 8 security controls – what they are and why they are important 

The Essential 8  (E8) Framework was developed by the Australian Signals Directorate (ASD).  It is a prioritised list of practical security controls  that organisations can implement to make their organisation’s information more secure.  They have been found to mitigate up to 85% of cyber attacks. You can read more at the Australian Government site.

No matter what jurisdiction you are in, or which framework your government recommends, the key eight security controls are recognised as critical to cyber resilience  as they prevent attacks, limit the impact of attacks and recover data and system availability.
