blueAPACHE’s Ironclad Defense to Safeguard your Future
The financial sector plays a crucial role in the Australian economy, and safeguarding sensitive data and operations is paramount. As highlighted in a recent article, the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA) has issued a stern warning about cybersecurity non-compliance. APRA’s information security standard CPS 234 is in effect, and the upcoming CPS 230 is looming on the horizon, set to take effect on July 1, 2025.
Understanding CPS 234 and CPS 230:
CPS 234, which has been in effect since July 2019, addresses foundational issues in cybersecurity. It focuses on ensuring that financial institutions can defend against evolving threats. However, the journey doesn’t end here. The financial industry is now on notice that APRA-regulated entities must prepare for compliance with CPS 230, which aims to ensure entities are resilient to operational risks and disruptions.
CPS 230 will play a crucial role in helping entities understand and manage the risks across their operational value chain, especially those associated with providing essential services to customers. The importance of this standard cannot be overstated, and APRA-regulated entities must proactively take steps to meet its requirements.
