Have your say on how Secure-by-Design practices should look.

ASD has established new draft Secure-by-Design Foundations to assist technology manufacturers and developers to adopt Secure-by-Design practices. ASD welcomes the insights and feedback from technology manufacturers and customers across industry and government, to help ensure the final Foundations are fit-for-purpose and appropriately tailored to industry, government and consumer’s needs.

The Foundations represent the first step to assist technology manufacturers across industry and government to adopt Secure-by-Design practices. They are designed to foster discussion between technology manufacturers and customers on how to best implement Secure-by-Design, aiming to encourage that will result in more secure products, not just security products, on the market.

Secure-by-Design requires careful consideration of cyber threats from the outset to enable mitigations through thoughtful design, architecture, and security measures. Its core value is to protect consumer privacy and data by designing, building, and delivering products with fewer vulnerabilities.

The Foundations build on the publication Shifting the Balance of Cybersecurity Risk: Principles and Approaches for Security-by-Design and Default first released in April and updated in October, highlighting the principles and approaches for Secure-by-Design and -Default by Australia and other joint seal agencies.

They address how manufacturers can make important shifts in their thinking and highlight processes to deliver Secure-by-Design products. Read the Foundations and provide your feedback.
