The Australian Internet Security Initiative Report

The research presented in this report examines how various AISI participants who receive compromised computer reports act on that information to help protect the integrity of their customers’ computing devices and their own communications networks.

Prior to July 2017, the Australian Internet Security Initiative (AISI) was administered by the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA), which undertook research in relation to the value and role of the program.

The research found that many of the internet providers interviewed relied solely on the AISI malware reports for information about malware infections; internet providers usually notified their customers of their malware infection by email; and more than half of the providers interviewed also provided step-by- step assistance to affected customers if needed.
