Local governments can now access a new publication developed by the Australian Signals Directorate’s (ASD) Australian Cyber Security Centre (ACSC) to help them effectively deal with a cyber security incident.
Coinciding with October’s Cyber Security Awareness Month 2023, the publication How the ACSC can help during a cyber security incident has been designed for professionals who lead an organisation’s incident response capabilities.
It provides the latest advice on:
- how to report a cyber security incident to ASD’s ACSC
- the ACSC’s role in whole-of-government cyber security incident response
- how to become an ASD Cyber Security Partner.
The ACSC can also provide technical advice and assistance and help minimise further harm. Reporting a cyber security incident also helps authorities to develop and update cyber security advice.
You can report a cybercrime, cyber security incident, or vulnerability via ReportCyber at www.cyber.gov.au/report, or by calling the Australian Cyber Security Hotline on 1300 CYBER1 (1300 292 371).
