Download the free datasheet to find out how Puppet gets you closer to Essential Eight compliance.
The Australian Cyber Security Centre Essential Eight (or ACSC Essential 8) is a framework of eight IT security risk mitigation strategies required by the Australian government.
The average cost of an Australian data breach is ~$4.3 million AUD ($2.9 million USD). That makes it the 11th most costly country in the world for cyberattacks.1
As of 2022, all Australian non-corporate Commonwealth entities (NCCEs) must adhere to all eight security controls outlined in the ACSC Essential 8. Failure to prove compliance with the Essential Eight can leave organisations on the hook financially and legally.
This document provides a description of the Essential Eight strategies and how Puppet Enterprise helps organisations move toward compliance. It shows you how Puppet automation eases the burden of achieving, maintaining, reporting, and proving compliance for IT administration and operations teams.
Puppet’s compliance use cases include configuration management, app control, patching, app hardening, restricting privileges, backups, and more – all critical considerations of the ACSC Essential 8.
