Targeted cyber intrusions are the biggest threat to Australia’s ICT systems (Department of Defence, 2012). Intruders are looking for information on business dealings, intellectual property and scientific data.

The Defence Signals Directorate (DSD) has developed a list of strategies to control and diminish targeted cyber threats. The strategies are based on analysis of incidents across the Commonwealth Government, and provide one of the best guides for small business owners to avoid intrusions.

The key message of the list is that at least 85% of targeted cyber intrusions that the DSD responds to could be prevented by following the top mitigation strategies:

  • Catchmalicious software using a whitelist.
  • Patchyour operating systems and your applications.
  • Matchthe right people with the right privileges.
