Many damaging cyber incidents occur as a result of employees, or ex-employees seeking unauthorised access to data and systems.  Indeed, more than a third of cyber breach incidents reported to the Office of the Australian Information Commission in the second quarter of 2018 arose as a result of compromised or stolen credentials and consequent unauthorised access.

There is a well-known cartoon drawn by John Klossner that depicts a boxing ring. In one corner, ready for the fight, is data security, with firewalls, encryption, antivirus software etc. and in the other corner is your employee – Dave – wearing a t-shirt saying “human error”.


When it comes to mitigating cyber security incidents, there is no single step that organisations can take that will guarantee the safety of their data or system performance. The Australian Cyber Security Centre has recommended eight mitigation strategies that organisation should implement as a baseline defence against targeted cyber intrusions, ransomware and malicious insiders. These strategies are known as the ‘Essential Eight’.
