What is the AESCSF?
Australian Energy Sector Cyber Security Framework
The Australian Energy Sector Cybersecurity Framework is a new regulatory structure aimed at ensuring Australia’s energy sector is protected from cybersecurity threats. As of the 17th of August 2023, compliance with the AESCSF is mandatory for all Australian powerplants. Compliance is structured across 3 Maturity Index Levels (MILs) to enable plants to initialise and ramp up their cybersecurity gradually, beginning with ad hoc cybersecurity solutions at MIL-1 and building toward a fully mature cybersecurity program.
