ACSC Essential 8 Maturity

Avoid compliance for compliance’s sake and shift to a “culture” of risk management that helps to reduce the compliance burden and insights and value.

The threat and risk landscape changes impacting ongoing E8 compliance. Real-time monitoring and alerting help identify challenges and prompt action.

Prioritise areas for uplift based on proportional risk and establish target maturities that address organizational requirements.

Projects typically address initial compliance. Organisational change is a common cause of visibility drift and so continuous monitoring and asset detection is key.

Adopting a tried and tested approach to assessments can help avoid inconsistent results, drive accurate, evidence-based and repeatable maturity reviews.
