ACSC launches Critical Infrastructure Uplift Program

Computer Security concept

The Australian Cyber Security Centre (ACSC) has launched the Critical Infrastructure Uplift Program (CI-UP) to assist owners and operators of Critical Infrastructure assets. The CI-UP is available to any critical infrastructure organisations that are part of the ACSC Partnership Program.

The CI-UP is designed to:

  • Assist partners that own or operate Critical Infrastructure assets or Systems of National Significance to better understand and improve their cyber security preparedness and maturity
  • Deliver a set of prioritised vulnerability and risk mitigation recommendations to assist partners to plan and implement these recommendations
  • Increase the visibility of threats to Australia’s most critical systems, with a focus on operational technology and information technology convergence points, and
  • Connect partners to other ACSC services.

The CI-UP also features a modular style of cybersecurity activities which respond to the different needs of each sector and partner organisation. These include:

  • Cyber Security Posture Assessment
  • Cyber Security Technical Validation
  • Cyber Threat Hunt
  • Table Top Exercises
  • Threat Briefings, and
  • CI-UP Reporting and Debrief.

The ACSC is further developing a self-assessment tool for partner organisations to help better understand their cybersecurity needs at their own pace. The ACSC has noted that the CI-UP is not an audit. Any findings will not be used for regulatory or compliance monitoring. Participating organisations may access the CI-UP via the partnership portal.
