The Australian Signals Directorate’s Australian Cyber Security Centre (ACSC) is responsible for monitoring and responding to cyber threats targeting Australian interests. Cyber threats can result in the denial of access to, the theft of, or the destruction of information and systems. In addition to the damage done to Australia’s economic wellbeing as a result of such cyber security incidents, they can undermine public confidence in organisations and consume significant resources to respond to.
The ACSC can help organisations respond to cyber security incidents. Reporting cyber security incidents ensures that the ACSC can provide timely assistance. This may be in the form of investigations, analysis and/or remediation advice.
