Cyber Hygiene Workshop

ASPI-PD and ASPI's International Cyber Policy Centre have designed a short, half-day Cyber Hygiene Workshop which can be tailored to your organisation, both within government and beyond. It empowers participants with the ability to:

  • Understand key cyber security risks in several different environments;
  • Apply practical guidance that improves individual and organisational cyber security practices;
  • Understand agency cyber security practices and policies; and
  • Understand who the relevant authorities are within the department or agency in case of a (suspected) cyber security issue.

The 2016 Australian Cyber Security Strategy identifies that the Australian community has a comparatively low awareness of cyber security risks. Despite all technological means that states and criminals employ to spy, interfere or compromise, the greatest vulnerability in cyber security remains the human factor – individual people.

Government personnel are more vulnerable than the general public to compromises originating from malicious actors operating from Australia and overseas as they engage online. This threat is rapidly escalating as governments increasingly use network-enabled and mobile devices to cooperate and communicate and provide web-based services to the public.

    ASPI's Cyber Hygiene Workshop is:

    • Specifically designed for the Australian Government working environment;
    • Informed by the current threat analysis from the Australian Cyber Security Centre (ACSC) and follows standing Government security and safety guidelines. ASPI has a continuous dialogue with ACSC to maintain this standard;
    • Developed to inform participants of current risks and provide practical guidance on 'what to do' and 'what not to do'; and
    • Refined for every client in a joint effort between ASPI and the respective agency.
