Organizations that wish to do business with the Australian Federal Government must have a compliance assessment conducted by an accredited Information Security Registered Assessors Program (IRAP) assessor. The assessment process is complex and time-consuming, but the benefits from a sales perspective are many. By completing the assessment, companies can attest to the appropriateness and effectiveness of the system’s security controls and their compliance posture so that agencies can determine if the risk of using the system to process their data is at an acceptable level. Companies that have undergone an IRAP assessment demonstrate to their clients that they take cybersecurity seriously and have taken proactive steps to comply with ISM requirements, as the Australian government requires. This helps win new business and provides a valuable boost to their reputation.
There are currently only a limited number of certified assessors in Australia, which can make it difficult to find someone to assess your security controls. Lucky for you, 38North partners with several certified IRAP assessors with a long history of helping companies achieve Australia’s highest levels of security compliance.
