Advice to organisations on cyber security

As you may be aware, a large-scale ransomware campaign has impacted organisations globally, with the latest being 28 June 2017. The Australian Government is closely monitoring this situation.  Situation updates as well as advice to individuals and organisations will be made available on the Australian Cyber Security Centre website as required. If you have been affected by ransomware or require assistance please visit the Australian Cyber Security Centre website and follow the guidance on how to report an incident.

Wherever possible we also advise organisations to review and implement the Strategies to Mitigating Cyber Security Incidents provided by the Australian Signals Directorate. These strategies provide a practical list of steps that organisations can take to reduce the likelihood of being impacted by these attacks.
