ASD launches annual cyber survey

The Australian Signals Directorate has launched its annual cybersecurity survey covering compliance with the Essential Eight threat mitigation strategies.

The survey, which is mandatory for all non-corporate Commonwealth entities to complete, also covers cyber threats and an organisation’s cybersecurity culture.

The ASD is urging all corporate Commonwealth entities and Commonwealth companies to respond to the survey as well, though it is not mandatory.

All departmental CISOs have received a link to the survey via the ASD’s cyber.gov.au government portal. The survey will be open until 30 October.

Survey respondents will receive individual reports detailing their entity’s results in late 2020, while key findings from the aggregated data analysis will be released to Commonwealth entities in March 2021.
