Australian Cyber Security Centre (ACSC)

ACSC Essential Eight

The Essential Eight is a set of guidelines developed by the Australian Cyber Security Centre (ACSC) to help organisations protect themselves against cyber threats. These guidelines are considered to be the most effective way to protect against cyber attacks on Microsoft Windows-based internet-connected networks. The guidelines may be applied to other systems and environments, but may not be as effective as alternative strategies. The Essential Eight Maturity Model is a tool that helps organisations implement these guidelines and track their progress in achieving cyber security. The model is based on the ACSC’s experience in dealing with cyber threats and assisting organisations in implementing the Essential Eight.

In2Networks provides a range of cybersecurity solutions to help organisations meet the Essential 8 guidelines. I2N SOC solutions focuses on providing advanced threat protection, incident response, and compliance management. Some of their key offerings include:

Endpoint protection: In2Networks offers a range of endpoint security solutions that protect against malware, ransomware, and other advanced threats. This includes anti-virus and anti-malware software, as well as endpoint detection and response (EDR) capabilities.

Network security: In2Networks provides a range of network security solutions that protect against threats at the network level, such as intrusion prevention systems (IPS) and firewalls. This helps organisations to enforce application whitelisting, and to monitor and block malicious traffic.

Compliance management: In2Networks offers solutions that help organisations to comply with various cybersecurity standards and regulations, such as PCI-DSS, HIPAA, and NIST. These solutions include vulnerability management, security assessments, and penetration testing.

Incident response: In2Networks provides incident response services that help organisations to quickly and effectively respond to cyber incidents. This includes incident investigations, forensic analysis, and incident containment and recovery.

Security awareness training: In2Networks offers security awareness training to help organisations educate their employees on cybersecurity best practices and to raise awareness of the risks.

In2Networks’ cybersecurity solutions are designed to provide comprehensive protection against cyber threats, and to help organisations meet the Essential 8 guidelines and comply with industry standards.

What are the Essential 8 Guidelines?

Application control

This guide aims to prevent the execution of unapproved or malicious software by creating a whitelist of approved applications and blocking anything that is not on the list.

Patch applications

This guide aims to ensure that all the software you use is up to date with the latest security patches to reduce vulnerabilities and prevent exploits.

Configure Microsoft Office macro settings

This guide aims to prevent malicious macros from running in Microsoft Office documents by disabling macros from untrusted sources, or requiring explicit user approval.

User application hardening

This guide aims to reduce the attack surface of applications by disabling unnecessary features and functions, and by configuring security settings to their highest level.

Restrict administrative privileges

This guide aims to reduce the risk of privilege escalation by limiting the number of users who have administrator rights, and by implementing least privilege practices.

Patch operating systems

This guide aims to ensure that all the operating systems you use are up to date with the latest security patches to reduce vulnerabilities and prevent exploits.

Multi-factor authentication

This guide aims to strengthen the authentication process by requiring more than one form of authentication, such as a password and a security token, to access sensitive systems and data.

Regular backups

This guide aims to ensure that important data is regularly backed up, to provide a fallback option in case of data loss or corruption, and to enable recovery from a cyber attack.

When following the Essential Eight guidelines, organisations should first decide on a target level of security that fits their specific needs and work towards achieving that level. It’s important to implement all the guidelines at the same level before moving on to higher levels of security.

The guidelines should be implemented in a risk-based approach, which means that exceptions should be kept to a minimum and any exceptions should be documented and reviewed regularly. It’s also important to note that achieving a certain level of security doesn’t mean that all threats are eliminated, additional measures should be taken in order to provide a comprehensive protection.

The Essential Eight guidelines are a minimum set of security measures, and organisations may need to implement additional measures depending on their specific environment. The guidelines are not meant to be a certification, but may be required to be assessed by an independent party depending on government regulations or contractual arrangements.

What Are The Benefits of Managed IT Services?

For companies around the world, managing IT services and tasks is an ongoing, never ending process. While many businesses and companies have the resources to invest for an in-house team of skilled individuals who can monitor and manage the equipment, servers, network etc on a 24/7 basis, for many companies it can be a hefty annual expense.

Especially for new start-ups, businesses or ventures, outsourcing or hiring IT Service providers can not only help reduce cost, but ensure security of sensitive information, and productivity as well.

Here is how In2Network can help you better manage your core IT functions and tasks:

Good for Small Business

For small businesses that are just taking off, outsourcing your IT capabilities can ensure that among the many roadblocks that you may face in your journey, your IT processes run smoothly without a hiccup. This can also include data backup and security, helpdesk solutions, ability to grow and scale in the future and much more.


Another benefit of outsourcing the management and operations of a business’s IT functions will result in the cost saved from having to hire specific skilled individuals to run and observe these IT functions or having to spend on trainings and certifications to get your staff on board. Therefore, hiring experts in this field will make sure that the room for error is almost none and you’re not wasting money on trainings and certifications for staff that have no background in IT.

Cost Efficiency

As mentioned in the above post, hiring and training an IT staff isn’t a budget friendly task. Especially if you’re starting out, you need all the funds you have on making sure that research and development for your product or service is secured. IT service providers already have the staff, have had the trainings, and the experience to help businesses focus on other pressing issues.

Increased Security

Security is one of the major concerns for any new or established companies all over the world. With the increase in data breaches and attacks over the past year, making sure your firewall is up to date just doesn’t cut it. An IT service provider will not only keep track of your firewall, but will also provide measures to better secure, store and access sensitive information, customer data, and assets of any business.

Reduced Risk

There is always risk involved in any business that operates digitally. Outsourcing the IT Services and functions of your business can not only help reduce risk but improve the security of your data servers, network, equipment etc but also ensure you’re in compliance with the regulations from different authorities relevant to your niche.

Extended Support

Everybody wants to enjoy the holidays without worrying about whether your data centre is operating at full capacity or the business standards are being met. Outsourcing to a skilled and qualified IT Service provider will make sure that you and your employees return from the holidays revitalised and ready to get back to work without any roadblocks.




We're Here To Stay

You're In Great Company

Are you a new startup working on revolutionising the tech world? Do you believe that your product can disrupt the tech industry and showcase unforeseen innovation. Or are you a company that wants to be more compliant with data sensitivity and compliance standards of your niche?

Then finding a right IT services and solutions provider will make sure you’re on the right path to success and security.

Whether you’re a new company or have been operating for a few years, the cost of operating and managing IT functions is increasing day by day, especially if you have an in-house team to manage them. While the cost of certain equipment may be coming down, the speed with which information is accessed and stored, requires solutions that are equally fast, reliable, scalable, and robust.
