Applications: Cyber Security


Application Management & Staff Education

With the onset of COVID-19, many Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) have needed to quickly pivot to online training and remote working situations. This has increased their reliance on computer systems and the internet. With this comes an increased risk of data loss, exposure and theft. While larger RTOs likely have departments who maintain the ICT systems of the organisation, smaller RTOs either self-manage or rely on outside service providers. The management staff in these RTOs need to have their own understanding of cyber security to be able to properly protect the RTO.

This cyber security webinar series will address concepts relating to the Australian Cyber Security Centre (ACSC)’s “Essential Eight Maturity Model” (also known as the “Essential Eight”). The Essential Eight is a series of eight of the most effective prioritised strategies, to help organisations mitigate cyber security incidents caused by various cyber threats. 

There are three maturity levels based upon the alignment of organisations to these strategies. Most organisations would be at Level One, which would equate to only be partly aligned. The ACSC advises as a baseline, organisations should aim to reach Level Three in each mitigation strategy.

The topics presented will be at an introductory level to provide an overall understanding of these areas, and an opportunity to review your own organisational practices.

This session will discuss:

  • User application hardening
  • Application control
  • Configure Microsoft Office macro settings
  • Staff education

Note: Whilst there will be opportunity for questions and discussion of the topics being addressed in each session, specific advice for a situation is recommended to be discussed offline.
