Share on

Queensland, Australia [May 2024] – Managed IT & Cybersecurity solutions provider ADITS announced today a strategic partnership with Australian start-up Assuredly, the all-in-one platform for managing cybersecurity controls.  

The collaboration exclusively allows ADITS to manage their clients’ compliance with the Privacy Act inside of Assuredly. This will streamline their customers complex cybersecurity, compliance and reporting processes. 


Evolving Cybersecurity Challenges

Our digital reliance increases more and more every day,” says Adam Cliffe, ADITS SEQ Managing Director. This gives more opportunities to cyber criminals to penetrate IT systems and access sensitive information. It is the responsibility of the business to protect the data they handle. And our partnership with Assuredly combined with our comprehensive CyberShield solution can certainly help organisations do that. 

The Assuredly platform has a user-friendly interface to review, evaluate, and demonstrate adherence to cybersecurity frameworks such as: 

  • SMB 1001 – a multi-tiered framework designed for Small and Medium-sized Businesses (SMBs) 
  • ISO 27001 – the leading international standard focused on information security
  • Essential Eight – cyber protection strategies recommended by the Australian government 
  • NIST CSF (National Institute of Standards and Technology Cybersecurity Framework) – a comprehensive reporting framework for mitigating organisational cybersecurity risks
  • SOC2 Assessment – examines an organisation’s internal control environment related to security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, or privacy 

New in the platform, and exclusively for ADITS, Assuredly now includes the Privacy Act Reasonable Steps.  

Did you know that even if you have completed a 27001 or NIST CSF Assessment and Certification you will have only covered 50% of the reasonable steps suggested by the OAIC? This indicates a clear need for businesses to take Privacy assessments as seriously as they take their security assessments. 

Exclusive Privacy Act Component

The integration of the Privacy Act for ADITS is groundbreaking. This unique feature can help assist businesses comply with the Australian Privacy Principles (APPs) while also build an effective cyber security defence. It stems from ADITS’ shared vision with the Australian Signals Directorate (ASD) and Cyber Security Certification Australia (CSCAU) to improve the cyber resilience of the Australian community. 

This is a significant milestone for ADITS as we play our role supporting the Australian government’s vision to be a world leader in cyber security by 2030,
continues Adam Cliffe.

We’re excited to team up with ADITS and enhance our platform to meet the unique needs of Australian organisations under the Privacy Act,” says Fiona Long, Assuredly Founder and CEO. “The general public can trust that businesses prioritising the privacy and security of stakeholders’ sensitive data are committed to upholding their trust and confidentiality. This partnership between Assuredly and ADITS exemplifies our dedication to this mission.

The Privacy Act 1988 regulates how organisations handle personal information, with standards for collecting, using, and securing data. Compliance with this law is mandatory for most organisations nowadays (Learn more in this article: Navigating Cyber Security Compliance and Regulations: Essential 8 vs. Privacy Act). 

Moving Forward with Confidence

By adopting robust cybersecurity practices, businesses can significantly reduce their risk of data breaches and associated financial and reputational damage. They can also demonstrate a commitment to data protection, which fosters trust and confidence amongst customers and stakeholders. 

At ADITS, we are committed to finding new and innovative solutions that can provide businesses with the best options to safeguard their data and assets,” says Adam. “This partnership with Assuredly is a great move forward in our efforts to stay ahead of the curve in cybersecurity.

By leveraging the Assuredly platform and ADITS’ cybersecurity expertise, businesses can be more confident in facing the complexities of compliance and data protection. They can then focus on their core operations because they know their sensitive data is well-protected.
