Governing Through a Cyber Crisis - Cyber Incident Response and Recovery for Australian Directors

Wednesday, 28 February 2024

Governing Through a Cyber Crisis provides a framework of better practice guidance to assist Australian directors to navigate critical cyber incidents at their organisations. The guidance was developed by the AICD in partnership with the Cyber Security Cooperative Research Centre (CSCRC) and Ashurst.

In recent years Australia has seen a wave of prominent cyber security incidents. These incidents have resulted in significant disruption to business operations, the loss of customer data and damage to organisational reputation. The decision making of the board has also been publicly scrutinised.

The guidance assists boards and directors with overseeing the effective response and recovery from a material cyber incident and emerge on the other side with a more cyber resilient organisation.

The resource expands on existing guidance in the AICD CSCRC Cyber Security Governance Principles and has been informed by insight from senior Australian directors, cyber security advisors and government.

The accompanying Snapshot includes a checklist of practical steps for SME and NFP directors in responding to a critical cyber incident. The AICD, CSCRC and Ashurst are committed to updating the guidance as the cyber security threat and regulatory landscape evolves.
