Protect your business from cyber threats with the 'Essential Eight' - Showcase SA

Protect your business from cyber threats with the ‘Essential Eight’

A 2-hour masterclass designed for senior executives to explain the requirements of the ‘Essential Eight’.

As occurrences of cyber crimes increase, it’s becoming more and more important for businesses to protect themselves, reducing the risk of financial loss, business disruption and damage to your reputation.

The ‘Essential Eight’ is a collection of mitigation strategies designed to reduce your vulnerability to cyber threats. Implementing these strategies can not only help to protect your business, but it is fast becoming a requirement for those working with Government or Defence. It is possible that in the near future, the Essential Eight could be mandatory for working with Government, rather than just recommended.

This 2-hour masterclass is designed for senior executives, providing an introduction to the Essential Eight in Cyber Security – including real world case studies – and how to implement the recommended strategies within your own business.

What is covered in this course? 

  • Essential Eight basics including:
    • What is the Essential Eight and why is it needed?
    • Government mandates
    • Industry requirements 
    • History of the Essential Eight and predicted future requirements
    • Key players
  • Real world case studies including lessons learnt
  • Common mistakes in implementing the Essential Eight with practical solutions
