The Essential 8 With Less Vendors

While mandatory for government agencies to an advanced maturity level 3, organisations in the private sector are increasingly looking to the ACSC Essential 8 as best practices to secure their environments. Among the most effective security measures available, implementing whitelisting, patching and restricting administrative privileges will help protect your organisation from 85% of the intrusion techniques to which the ACSC responds. Mitigate risk, reduce threat vectors, and improve remediation and recovery.
