An exponential increase in awareness pertaining to prevention of web intrusions has led to the Australian Signals Directorate (ASD) responding with the introduction of 'Strategies to Mitigate Targeted Cyber Intrusions'. This response of the organization to the highly rising intrusion activities includes 35 different strategies arranged in a list on the basis of how effectively they eradicate possibility of cyber intrusion. Organizations in the public and private sector have experienced a growing need to implement the Top 4 Mitigation Strategies among those mentioned in ASD's list, which are Application Whitelisting, Patch Applications, Patch Operating System, and Minimized Administrative Privileges. As specified by ASD's Cyber Security Operations Centre, effective implementation of the given top 4 strategies can mitigate more than 85% of the intrusion activities faced by agencies. Spear phishing, wherein malicious emails are tailored to recipients so as to increase their chance of opening malicious links, thus jeopardizing security, are eradicated with effect through these strategies. Individual students, therefore, achieve a hands-on training in effective application and audit of ASD's top 4 mitigation strategies in their operational frameworks for an increased degree of cyber security.
