The Australian Signals Directorate’s Australian Cyber Security Centre (ASD’s ACSC), in collaboration with the US Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), has published a new tool, Business Continuity in a Box, to help businesses continue basic operations during or after a cyber incident.
