NSWs lead cluster agencies fail to implement all Essential Eight controls

According to state auditor Margaret Crawford, the cybersecurity policy of New South Wales government institutions is not strong enough, which is a cause for “great concern”.

The audit found that nine leading government agencies – the Prime Minister and Cabinet, Communities and Justice, Customer Service, Education, Planning, NSW Regional, Health, Finance Department, and Transport – had provided accurate reports on their maturity of the requirements of the state’s online security policy.

Of these institutions, none of them used all Essential Eight controls at the first level, while the Auditor-General stated that all organizations must be at the third level.
